Some syslog daemons can filter to different files based on the ident,
not just on the facility and priority.

As an example, I use this with metalog:

  Unbound :
    program_regex = "^unbound"
    logdir        = "/var/log/unbound"
    break         = 1

rsyslog.conf(5) describes a similar concept under Property-Based Filters.

I'm sure syslog-ng also has such a concept.
