syslogd -l can set up additional logging sockets:
-l Specify a location where syslogd should place an
socket. The primary use for this is to place
sockets in /var/run/log of various chroot filespaces.
missions for socket can be specified in octal
before socket name, delimited with a colon. Path to
tion must be absolute.
If you are using jails, I would gather that you normally would be
running a separate syslogd within that jail, but this approach
provides another option...
