You could install a "real" syslog server like syslog-ng or rsyslog, 
listening on a different port (say, and tell your 
Busybox syslog to forward to that.  Then you can do filtering based on 
facility and level (e.g. set logging-facility=3 to log to facility "local3")

It might be better simply to disable the Busybox syslog server (if you 
can find where it's enabled in startup scripts) and run just the real 
one instead.

Another option is to forward all your logs to another host anyway, to 
avoid wear on the flash of your tiny host.
