syslogd remote logging

I am trying to get syslogd configured to do remote logging to another 
box.  In my syslog.conf on the local machine I have:

local0.*  @xx.xx.xx.xx

In syslog.conf on the remote machine I have:

local0.* /some/file.log

and I have added the syslogd_flags="-a xx.xx.xx.xx/xx" to rc.conf on 
the remote machine and restarted syslogd.  

So far nothing is being logged to the remote machine.  Can anyone 
point out a step that I have missed?
