This all depends on your setup. If you're logging to host, then it will send the system messages that you have specified in the logging "level" - ranging from 0 - 7 (informational to debug), 7 being the highest.
SNMP traps are a different thing. They will fire off a trap to a host when an event happens or a threshold is reached.
They are similar in that if an interface goes down, then the node will log a syslog event and send a trap (if configured to do so). However, the log message will be a message and the snmp trap will send a trap including the OID (object identifier).
You can do a LOT more with snmp than you can with log messages, such as send messages when an interface hits more than 50% load, etc.
Oh - there is a command so that you can send log messages as snmp traps too ;-)
