Two answers:

(1) If you set AccountingMax, or if you have a low enough bandwidth rate,
then your relay will opt to not advertise its DirPort. It looks like your
bandwidth rate is tiny, so that's probably it. There is a log message
as Tor starts that informs you it's making this choice.

(2) The phrase you want is "dir mirror" or "dir server". The directory
authorities play a different role, which you can read about here:

Thanks for running relays! (And, please consider making them bigger. :)
