Section 31 isn't namechecked in Countdown to Darkness
But if Legion's synopsis is accurate, it is mentioned in STID itself.

whereas Kirk is told by Pike that Admiral Marcus of Starfleet Intelligence is covering up April and the Phaedus incident. The implication is that it's SI that's rotten and trying to start a war.
If Pike doesn't know about Section 31, then Kirk won't know either. Pike could simply be assuming that the entirety of SI is at fault when it's actually Section 31 that's doing the bad stuff.
