Kiwi defaults to saving logs in its installed folder.  You can
configure its extensive set of options through the GUI.

m0n0 logs the last x events into it's memory all the time.  It always
saves those past x ones and you can see it in the system logs page. 
As for having it log to syslog, it just sends a copy of the message
via UDP to the syslog server.  Since it is a UDP datagram, m0n0wall
doesn't care nor does it make any attempt to figure out whether the
receiving host is alive or not.  If the receiving host is up, good. 
If it's not, the packet just gets dropped somewhere.
