In your case it may be simpler to just split the string into groups. 
You don't even need regular expressions or a parser.

buff = r"#1 1 550 111 SYNC_PEER RES <YP>syncpeers=(id=54325432;add=10." \
"0.0.1;port=89;up=89),(id=97899;add=;port=543;up=543)," \

tran, sess, ndto, ndf, cmd, dirr, rest = buff.split()

eq = rest.find("=")
parmname = rest[0:eq]
parms = rest[eq+1:].split(",")

for parm in parms:
	parmitems = parm[1:-1].split(";")
	for item in parmitems:
		name, val = item.split("=")
		print name, val
	print "---"
