Obviously, make sure the syslog server gets the domain name you are
looking for when you do a reverse-lookup on the client's address. If
you temporarily let any host log, do you see the log entries from the
clients? Finally, if you are still stumped, run syslogd(8) in debug
mode, -d, to see what is going on.
