The same behavior is available through the "logging" parameter, which is
a bit more flexible with regards of sending log messages to different
targets. See "man smb.conf":

       syslog (G)

	   The logging parameter should be used instead. When logging is
           set, it overrides the syslog parameter.


       logging (G)

	   This parameter configures logging backends. Multiple backends
           can be specified at the same time, with different log levels
           for each backend. The parameter is a list of backends, where each
           backend is specified as backend[:option][@loglevel].
           Example: logging = syslog at 1 file

So just set "logging" instead of "syslog".
