Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

We set up a local instance of OSM following the Wiki instructions and are successfully using it to reverse geo-code; we would love to contribute to OSM's data but cant tell if it is possible to log the requests for reverse lookup that fail to produce a full address on our local server.

Does such a function/log exist in Nominatim or would the only option be to develop it in our application? we intend to have an employee review such requests and update them on OSM.org so that our server will get the additions through osmosis.

Thanks for any help or direction that you can provide.

Have a look at the new_query_log table. It contains date, search term and number of results. You might need to switch on logging in the build/settings.php files (look for CONST_Log_DB). You should be able to extract failed queries from that. If not we're open for pull request on github.
