there is no such log. a server isn't rebooted from an ip address. a server is rebooted from a shell command, which in turn is (potentially) run via a connection from another host. there is no direct map between the two pieces of information. you could potentially correlate the vty numbers listed by the ssh logs and the kernel logs, all in /var/log/messages, and /var/log/security on most redhatesque systems.

If your goal is to audit/track reboots and the user starting them, I suggest looking into sudo. It is not perfect, but if you are trying to track lazy (and not malicious) people - it may be what you are looking for.
