I would like to setup a syslog-server for our ESX-VSphere environment (20 ESX-servers).
Here I found how to activate it http://gvmorley.wordpress.com/tag/vsphere/, but does anybody have best-practises advice on this?

=> which syslog-server to use, filter messages etc?

Do you have syslog server in the network?
Not aware of best practice but sending logs to dedicated syslog server is quite common
Easiest is to use the vSphere client, Config tab > Advance settings > Syslog
If not sure refer to the official guide http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r40_u1/vsp_40_u1_admin_guide.pdf
