You have to tell syslog not to add these messages to the other log
files. The format of the syslog.conf is well documented, see man

For a hint: This line writes /var/log/syslog for me:

  *.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/syslog

This means: Log everything of all levels (*.*), but for auth and
authpriv, log level none.

This would also ignore all local6 messages:

  *.*;auth,authpriv.none;local6.none    -/var/log/syslog

You probably have to change some more lines that match *. in a similar way.
