    You can't use a logical standby to off load your backup needs. This is because a logical does not replicate the original database, but only the transactions therein. Rowid's and object id's between the two will be different so you can't just move a data file from your logical standby to the primary for recovery purposes. A physical standby is the only way to do that since it does maintain rowid's and the like.
