According to the man page this last on should work.

How are you stoping/starting syslogd? (reboot, /etc/rc.d/syslogd, ...)

If your using /etc/rc.d/syslogd, make sure that /etc/rc.conf has
syslogd_flags defined to the correct value.

Is the FBSD 5.x system using the same IP address as the old FBSD 4.x system?
If it's not you may need to either change the FBSD 5.x IP address to the old
4.x IP address or change the syslog address on the routers.
