Where are you looking for the log?
If you are not running syslog-ng (or any other syslog) then the log is
Windows' event log.
But if you did install/configure/run syslog-ng then its at
/var/log/messages (or a different log if you configured that).
Don't confuse /var/log/sshd.log for the real log, that one is just for
output sent by cygrunsrv (the program that serves as helper to make sshd
a Windows service).
