Depends on your shell.  Bash understands both &> and >&.  The C shell
(where the construct originated) just supports >& but since nobody uses
a C shell anymore who would ask "Am I using the wrong redirection
operator?", this is mostly of historical relevance for guessing what
modern shells might do.  Dash does not support either: calling the above
would run make all in background, in parallel with turning make.log into
an empty file.

If you want to be on the safe side, write

make all >make.log 2>&1

since this will work on all shells known to me.
