Are you running syslogd in the host environment?  If so, it's probably
bound to INADDR_ANY and thus pre-empted your jailed syslog from binding
to a network port.

Try adding


in the host environment.  That prevents syslogd from listening via a
network port at all, although it will still happily log messages from
the local machine.

Use sockstat(1) to diagnose what addresses syslogd(8)s have bound to.
