IMHO it is better to let Apache log via Syslog in the first place.
Try a httpd.conf line like:
CustomLog "|/usr/bin/logger -p local1.info -t apache" complete

And then have the syslog-ng on the client write them simultaneously to 
the server and to /etc/apache2/logs (using a filter on facility local1).
