Only rsyslog is in RHEL 6, and neither syslog nor syslog-ng are in
EPEL. rpm.pbone.net is not caught up to publishing RHEL/CentOS 6 yet,
unfortunately, so I don't have a trivial way to tell you who's
published syslog-ng ports that will work well for CentOS 6. It looks
like karan.org published syslog-ng for RHEL/CentOS 5, though.

The switchover is not too painful, configuration files between syslog
and rsyslog are pretty close.
