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.

Thanks for reply! Sorry if I was not clear at first.
What I meant was --
SERVER1 will send its own syslog-ng's internal logs ( i.e. logs generated by syslog-ng daemon ) to SERVER2 in addition to normal logs ( i.e. logs under /var/log ). I want SERVER2 to be able to distinguish between SERVER1's internal logs and other logs from that system.
Thanks Reuti! But, SERVER1 will send all other types of log ( i.e. auth, kern, cron etc... ) as well as messages generated by driver 'internal()'. That's why I don't know how to distinguish between other/normal logs and 'internal' logs.
The internally generated ones are the ones with the program name syslog-ng for which you can define a filter, and the “-- MARK --” entries. You could also define two sources at SERVER1 and route them to two different ports at the destination.
