First off, your syslog.conf syntax is wrong.  It should be :

auth.alert 	@managmentserverIP

Look at your snort.conf file for more info on the facility and priority

Make sure you have syslogd on managementserver configured to allow syslog
over UDP.  Under RedHat, you can do this by editting
/etc/sysconfig/syslog and additing the following line:


Then restart syslog.

As it says there, man syslogd for more info.
