Cisco Remote Syslog on different UDP/TCP Port

I have a couple of Cisco 2960's sending syslog messages to a remote syslog-ng on port 514 (standard).


I need to set another Switch so it sends traffic to the same syslog server but on another UDP port (such as 714),, is that possible,?

I cannot find the option on the documentation.
