>From the -current syslogd man page:
-s Select ``secure'' mode, in which syslogd does not open a UDP
socket but only communicates over a UNIX domain socket. This is
valuable when the machine on which syslogd runs is subject to at-
tack over the network and it is desired that the machine be pro-
tected from attempts to remotely fill logs and similar attacks.
However, looking at the source, this same option also prevents syslogd
to log TO remote hosts.
