Annoying favicon.ico log messages in API Gateway

I see a lot of annoying messages in my ssg logs

com.l7tech.server.MessageProcessor: Request URL not resolved: https://api_gw_fqdn/favicon.ico

I believe I understand this to be user's browsers trying to get the little icon that shows up in the favorites bar in some browsers.  

 

Can I add a web api at that url that simply returns an icon file to get rid of these messages?  

--or--

Can I add a web api at that url that simply returns "ok" since I really don't want to give someone an icon file

--or--

would i be causing my gateway more "effort" than it is worth to serve that file or this "ok" message and just live with this in the logs.
