No, there should be no problem when logging snort
alerts to both a database and syslog. I am working on
the same situation and everything is working

I actually log snort alerts to a file different from
/var/log/messages (in addition to a database). I then
used a LOG_LOCAL facility:

1.In snort.conf, add the line: “output alert_syslog:
2.then, in syslog.conf:
modify the line that containes /var/log/messages and
add local0.none, so that snort alerts won't be logged
to /var/log/messages file.
add the line "local0.* /path/to/snort_log_file", snort
alerts will then be logged to the
/path/to/snort_log_file file”.

I hope this would be handy.
