I believe you can change where those messages go by editing your /etc/syslog.conf file, specifically these lines (found at the bottom):

        *.=notice;*.=warn       |/dev/xconsole

I have never tried redirecting those messages to an SSH terminal, though.  I think it would need to be bound to a named pipe in order for syslog to send messages to it.  Again, I've never tried it so I could be very wrong about that.
