[syslog-ng] get destination(s) based on log facility and severity

We have a kind of machinery which collects syslog logs from
several hosts. Currently it works by sending a message using
logger(1) to the given facility.severity and then looking up the
message in log files in /var/log and a few other directories
(using grep).

I'm looking for a more robust and faster way to discover the
destination. Would that be possible with syslog-ng? And which is
the optimal way to achieve that? An extra syslog-ng option? An
extra binary? Or perhaps using logger(1)?
