It refers to the spool directory at the same level that the exim config
file does -- /var/spool/<something>.

The 'input', 'db' and 'msglog' subdirectories are all part of the same spool,
and exim does not provide any way to configure weird uses of them at that
level. As far as config files are concerned, you should not be looking any
deeper than /var/spool/<whatever>.
