Don't have time to fix your configuration file, you need a "filter" to  
accomplish this specific goal.

You need to attach a LevelMatchFilter (from the extras companion)  
followed by a DenyAllFilt to the appenders.  Set the levelToMatch to  
the level you desire to allow through.  The filter will be checked  
after the all the other levels and thresholds, so you need to make  
sure that they are set to allow the events that you are interested in  
to get through.

Priority is an obsolete name for level.  The level of a logger  
establishes the lowest level of event that is handled by this logger  
and forwarded to its parent.

additivity determines if an event is forwarded to the parent logger  
after processing by this logger.

threshold is a level below which an event is discarded by an appender.

Search the list for LevelMatchFIlter or filter, or just look in the  
last month of archives and you should find sample files.  Also, the  
source for the extras companion should also have samples of using
