If the remote machine is a file server, you can use the logging module
to write to a file on the remote machine

Also the logging module can be used to easily log to a syslog handler.
If this remote file is a "normal" log file managed by a syslog process
then you should find the python part pretty easy.  The syslog process
still needs to be configured to accept your logging messages, but that
should not be too difficult.

Scanning the logging module docs, it looks like you can use it to write
your own process to run on the remote machine to handle "logging
messages".  Then use the logging module on the local machine to send
"logging messages" to the remote machine.
