	What unix/linux distro are you using to log the files to?
usually a linux distro's syslog is: syslogd -m 0 -r
and that will receive syslog events from other servers, etc.
syslog-ng is good but true, its a pain sometimes to config.
And you can just put a rule into syslog.conf to catch the incoming 
messages and put them in their own file as well.

!m0n0wall		/var/log/m0n0.log

all syslog.conf is , in general is a filter for raw logs to go somewhere.
