Sudo Logging

I have a logging question. I am fully aware that sudo stores entries within
the messages file located up under /var/adm. I am wondering if additional
logging can be turned on? I have been asked to give some privileged users
root access to certain servers within our environment. I lost the battle of
root access with management! But I would like to keep the same password on
all of our machines. So I decided to use sudo to allow specific users to su
- to the root account. Is there any way to track what a users doing while in
a root shell through sudo? 

Thank you for your time...
