syslog time resolution

I would like to increase the number of decimals reported in logfiles by 
syslogd(8), anyone knows if it is possible and perhaps a hint on how to 
do it?

tcpdump for instance, has six decimals: 21:25:20.160833 whereas the 
standard syslog has zero decimal secs.

I am only referring to events within a single system so it's not related 
to clock accuracy.

Thanks and sorry if I missed the obvious!
