syslogd appears to not be sending a hostname for remote syslog messages, though
local syslog messages contain them. From the same box: 

tail -n1 /var/log/messages
Aug 31 21:17:18 router syslog.info syslogd exiting

22:57:25.324213 IP 192.168.XXX.XXX.50075 > 192.168.XXX.XXX.514: UDP, length 39

Compare that to a message sent by a Mac running syslogd with a remote

Also, my syslog startup:
