OK, take a look at in 
the Custom Log Formats section, where it details the tokens that can be 
used in a log format.  It states the following:

%...c:          Connection status when response is completed.
                 'X' = connection aborted before the response completed.
                 '+' = connection may be kept alive after the response is
                 '-' = connection will be closed after the response is sent.

I don't know for sure if this does what you're after or not... and if it 
did, I'd leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide how best to 
utilise it. :)

Perhaps a more robust solution would be to write your own module to perform 
the relevant server-side actions on successful delivery, if that's an 
option.  It's really not as hard as you might expect!
