Also, I think Brandon answered your question, but on a related note, dbms_system.ksdwrt can be used to write to the alert log or trace file, explicitly. It, along with some other alert log writing functionality, is documented here:

Subject: init.ora parameter to log errors to the alert log


Years ago I found a tip, you could add an entry in the init.ora file for a specific Oracle error that wouldn't normally get logged. Then when a user session encountered that error, the error would get logged in the alert log. Does anyone recall that?
