pppd syslogs everything to /var/log/messages (that's the default on my box
anyways) and it will say something like :
pppd[15450]: CHAP peer authentication succeeded for <username>

you could do a tail /var/log/messages -n2000 | grep CHAP if you wanted to
see who has been logging in.

other than that, there's not much i know of. all the authentication is
provided by pppd (if you don't have an auth or a require-chap (or pap, etc.)
option, it doesn't even ask for a username.
