Amdx2_64 is correct - the new default file is "/etc/rsyslog.conf". The old syslog was "sysklogd". An alternative is syslog-ng (for "syslog-no-good"? ;-)

You can read more details about rsyslogd here:

In theory, you should be able to customize your site configuration by adding/modifying files in /etc/rsyslog.d/*. But this bug report suggests there were problems in at least one version of Fedora:
