The value of the integral is defined.
However, Mathematica reports  Indeterminate  which is invalid.

                Integrate[Log[z]/(1 + z^2), {z, 0, Infinity}]

ACTUAL:         Indeterminate

EXPECTED:       0

CHECK-UP:       NIntegrate[Log[z]/(1 + z^2), {z, 0, Infinity}] // Chop

                0
