As far as I know, this is not possible. You would have to configure the filtering on the syslog server side.

If what vmroyale says is true (and think he is right), then you can either filter messages on syslog-server, or if you can not touch syslog-server filters/settings, then set-up syslog-relay on VM, filter messages there, and forward to syslog-server only what you want...
