I have tried a long time to get it working with rsyslog etc.
But finally I have moved on to journald. Now I have readable, per pdns
so start pdns with --disable-syslog
gives you readable logs per pdns instance you can easily read using
journalctl -fu pdns at instance.
You can then ship the journald to your central syslog server.
