I came across this also, this statement works (maybe someone should
finally update the docs?):

destination loggingserver { tcp("" port(514)); };

Off Topic: No responses to my problem described last week? I still
experience this and other faulty logfiles (like "?Generic5.8" when our
sun reboots..) At least two other persons suffer also from this problem,
as they told me via e-mail.
