Syslog to remote host

OK, I have syslog'ging to a remote host done.  I am logging from
morphine to marijuana.  On morphine I am saying, in /etc/syslog.conf                             

On marijuana, in /etc/rc.conf, I have put
syslogd_flags="-a morphine:* -b marijuana"
which according to me accepts from morphine and binds on marijuana.

All is working to here, everything that morphine syslogs to I
can on marijuana get that out with  The problem is it mixes
it up with marijuana's, and when I add a whole bunch of other
servers/switches/routers etc, its going to get VERY hairy.

How can I tell marijuana to log everything from morpine in
/var/log/morpine.  I have tried
+morphine         /var/log/morphine/maillog

But that does absolutely nothing.  I am having trouble understanding the
syslog.conf man page.
