Granted that there is likely more than one way to do it, heres how I do
it (in the servers syslogd.conf):

local6.*                                        /var/log/lanx.log
local7.*                                        /var/log/fortigate.log
mail.debug                                      /var/log/barracuda.log

...each log file represents a different remote host delivering the log
data. So, on lanx.domain.com, I point the syslog service to the IP of
the server, and tell it to use local6 as the facility.

I then start syslogd on the server as such:

/usr/sbin/syslogd -a 208.70.104.202/32:514 -a 208.70.104.205/32:514 \
-a 208.70.104.1/32:514 -f /etc/syslogd.conf
