[syslog-ng] restart vs reload

I am trying to dynamically change the output message format between RFC3164
and RFC5424.

root at localhost:~# diff /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
<     network("" transport("udp") ip-protocol(4) port(514)
>     syslog("" transport("udp") ip-protocol(4) port(514)

If I use: "/usr/sbin/service syslog-ng restart" it works fine, but if I use
"/usr/sbin/syslog-ng-ctl reload", the message format does not change.

I am using syslog-ng version 3.19

Any thoughts?

Thanks & Regards,
