bash output stderr to 2 files and stdout

I want to output the stdout and stderr in a logfile,
moreover i do want to log stderr also to a separate logfile, and print str to the screen

I searched arround and tried:

$ command 2>&1 > log | tee -a log log.err
But then in log first the stdout appears, and then stderr.

2>&1 redirects stderr to stdout, whereas &> redirects both stderr and stdout to file. That being said:
2> file.txt
That will redirect stderr to a seperate file. Hope that helps.
