you can add additional output modules to log to syslog, e.g. I'm using a mysql
AND syslog alerting using the follwing lines in snort.conf:

output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT LOG_PID
output database: alert, mysql, user=user password=xxxx dbname=snort
host=localhost sensor_name=ids01

Take a look at the snort manual shipped with snort 1.8.1 (or in the
documentation section of www.snort.org) to get more info about the ouput modules
and their options.
