remote logging with syslogd

I'm trying to put up a remote logging server. I want to let my
Airport Express send its logs to my FreeBSD server.
So I said to my Airport to send its logs to the internal ip of my
server, I suppose it works because that's what Apple hardware does.
Now I did the following things on my bsdbox:
I appended to syslog.conf:
# Log remote Airport Express
I touched /var/log/airport.log and it has rw-r----- root:wheel rights
And to rc.conf I added:
syslogd_flags="-b myhostname.intranet -a *.intranet"
I restarted syslogd via:
# /etc/rc.d/syslogd restart
I suppose it should work, but nothing appears in /var/log/airport and
there should be something that it listens for input or not?
Also I checked netstat -a | grep syslog
udp4 0 0 myhostname.intranet..syslo *.*
So it looks like it is not listening.
Anyone any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
