Well you could try make a log (error/access) format with 
vhost/domain/whatever there and setup single access_log/error_log 
location, which would be a fifo with cronolog cronolog connected to it, 
note that I have no idea whatever nginx can write to fifo (or will 
replace it with a file instead) but worth trying, to not slow down nginx 
because of the read-fifo flow you could use ftee (find ftee.c somewhere 
on the internet) and open fifo with it forwarding stdout to cronolog.

The above solution sounds like a overkill but if you want realtime
