That's normally done by syslog (or equivalent: rsyslog, syslog-ng, ...)
so if you tell the daemon to log via syslog it should be taken care of
for you.

If you're very fussy about the date format you may need to do a little
work, but remember that there's a *lot* of code Out There which parses
the 'standard' Unix-style logs and if you move away from that format
it may come back to bite you later on.
