Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First of all there are 8 local facilities (local0 to local7) in syslog.conf.
Second in apache ErrorLog directive you need a colon ":" and not the pipe symbol "|" to define the syslog facility. And you dont need a "*" at the end
Thanks for your reply,and i have tried as you have pointed out but still I couldn't find any error logs getting updated in the respective log files.When I point out directly to the error files at httpd.conf,it working perfectly,while using syslog it is not working.
Yes i have found the mistake, just a typo.....But still there is another problem ,I've two virtual host(Please see at the top for the httpd config file),I'm getting error logs onlt for first virtual host,that is rubby.gai.net and not for tubby.gai.net
Finalised the problem:
I found that only for the entry where there is local0 in syslog is taking.Whereas the local1 which is pointed for another virtual host is not taking.let me show,
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
# The authpriv file has restricted access.
# Log all the mail messages in one place.
# Log cron stuff
# Everybody gets emergency messages
# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
