Just fixed it... 

I basically just changed this line in the syslog.conf file to go from 

mail.debug                     ifdef(`LOGHOST', /var/log/syslog, @loghost)


mail.debug                                      /var/log/syslog

It seems like the machine "loses" it's loghost definition after a log
Now my syslog is loging mail info, and I'm happy. Now the question 
remains, why does the loss of loghost occurr....
