I am unsure about file permissions, but I can tell you what we do with our syslog server. We have approximatly 70 servers, 15 of which log to the syslog server (all Linux servers and a firewall). To prevent not logging an event we want, we send all syslog messages (*.*) to the logging server. From there, we split the different types of logs into the different files. If you do this, make sure you watch the server load and make sure that messages are not being dropped or lost due to too many messages being sent on a small pipe or on a slow network.
