Syslogd: remote logging saves to wrong file

I'm trying once more to get remote logging to work properly. The handbook states (

"On the log server, edit /etc/syslog.conf to specify
*.*     /var/log/client1.log"

This does not work however, and all client logs are being saved to host's own /var/log/messages instead of the per client logfile specified in syslog.conf.

Host syslogd is started with the (-a) flag, so there's no problem with listening.
