The asymptotic dynamic correlation function of a one-dimensional spin chain is described by a power law. Corresponding exponents characterize various bulk and boundary critical behaviors. We present new results for the logarithmic contribution to the boundary correlation of isotropic Heisenberg chains. The logarithmic exponent $\lambda=1$ is derived using the renormalization group method. We confirm our analytical results by comparing with numerical quantum Monte Carlo data.
