Fortigate sending to Syslog AND FortiAnalyzer

I know this was possible in older versions of the firmware but I'm having issues getting my Fortigates to send data to both my syslog server and the FortiAnalyzer at the same time.  Is it possible that the FortiGate isn't sending to the syslog because the FortiAnalyzer is configures with the Security Fabric turned up?  I'm checking with the linux admin of the syslog host to make sure he has port 514 open on it but thought I'd check here to make sure it was still an option even though Fortinet removed the syslog option from the GUI.  I configured it from the CLI and can ping the host from the Fortigate.  Any help or tips to diagnose would be much appreciated.  My Fortigate is a 600D running 6.4.12 build 2060
