It doesn't, and it is surely misleading and potentially quite confusing to
make a logo, used otherwise normally as a logo, a link to a description of
the logo.

If you have something to say about the design of a logo, then you can say
that on separate page, or in a separate section of some page. Any link
pointing to it should we written along normal link text design principle:
descriptive, concise, and distinctive. "About our logo" or "Description of
the ACME logo" might work.
