[syslog-ng] syslog-ng with samba

Perhaps your samba daemons are writing directly to log files and not 
routing through syslog, as you apparently want them to.  Grep your 
smb.conf files for "log"  There is an option, "syslog=1" to enable it, 
which is the default.

Otherwise, perhaps your filter is not matching the messages, thus not 
being routed to the destination option like you desire.

I use something like;

filter f_samba_smbd { program("smbd.*"); };
filter f_samba_nmbd { program("nmbd.*"); };
