you want to tweak /etc/syslogd.conf. You can log to remote machine using
something like

*.* @loghost.domain.com

You might have to configure the firewall/remote syslog to accept the
connections. Also if there is heavy network traffic you can not be
guarenteed to get the messages as it uses UDP rather than TCP. My personal
advice would be log both locally and remotly
