sysutils/syslog-ng3 processes

I've noticed that when I start syslog-ng3 daemon it starts two processes. I
haven't seen this when running syslog-ng.

Here are the processes:

root     554  0.0  0.1  5320  2092  ??  I     4:46PM   0:00.00
/usr/local/sbin/syslog-ng -p /var/run/
root     555  0.0  0.1  5320  2456  ??  Ss    4:46PM   0:00.02
/usr/local/sbin/syslog-ng -p /var/run/

I was wondering why it actually start two (identical?) processes? Anyone has
an idea? Is this normal?
