Thank you for your prompt response on this (and on all the questions I've posted for that matter), I appreciate it.  Although not what I was hoping to get as a reply, I suspected that would be the case given the difference in what was being done and just needed to know.

There is not currently support for logging the I/O logs via syslog.
Those logs are stored locally.  Using syslog() for this is rather
difficult since you'd need a way to reassemble the log from a large
number of parts on the remote end.
