Quick question about using kill -USR1 to recreate access.log

Thanks to everyone in advance!

I have a cron that runs the following:

kill -USR1 `cat $NGINX_PID`

My questions is during time between the mv and the kill, is there any log
writes that are being discarded or are they being stacked in memory and
dumped into the new access.log after it is recreated?
