[syslog-ng] try tcp destination but fail quickly if unavailable

I have a tcp destination that, unfortunately, may occasionally become
unavailable.  When that happens, I believe that the system will try to
retransmit the messages and/or re-establish the connection
(time_reopen), but either way, messages will accumulate.

Is there a way to tell syslog-ng "try this destination, but if it can't
be delivered within <time>, drop the message / skip the destination" ?
