Hi James,
i think much better for syslog server usage is syslog-ng. It has bit
more difficult configuration for such a small network, but it brings
much more functionalities.

the simple ruleset for your needs could look like:

source s_sys { unix-stream("/dev/log"); internal(); };
source s_net { udp(); };

destination d_net { file("/var/log/network/$HOST/$YEAR.$MONTH.log"
owner(root) group(root) perm(0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes)); };

log { source(s_net); destination(d_net); };
log { source(s_sys); destination(d_net); };

Hope it helps,
