No, it writes to disk:\batdbug.log
(Verified by typing "see bat-debug-log").

For your interest, if you have an open wireless access point or a USB
ethernet dongle supported by OFW, then you can capture OFW output using
The "telnetd" command starts a TELNET server on OFW and displays the
address that should be used.
Unless told otherwise, OFW first looks for an open access point called
OLPCOFW. The "essid" command can be used to tell it an alternate access
So for example to capture "see-bstate" output I was able to do this:
ok essid quozl.linux.org.au
Scan for: quozl.linux.org.au found
Associate with: quozl.linux.org.au
DHCP got 10.0.0.163
... then on my desktop system ...
$ telnet 10.0.0.163
Connected to 10.0.0.163.
