There is no "global" logs in nginx, only "local" ones, either
explicitly defined or inhereted from previous level.
The access_log directive, as all array-type directives in nginx
config, will ignore inherited values if defined at certain level.
I.e. in configuration
only server1 will have logging set to log1, while server2 will
have logging set to log2. If you want server2 to write log into
both log1 and log2 you should say this explicitly, i.e.
In you case you should explicitly add
access_log ... traffic;
to all servers which define their own logging.
