I would like to have a cron task signal emacsclient to save a certain
buffer which I keep open throughout the workday, so that a perl script
can do some processing on the contents at the end of the day.
Signalling to save _all_ buffers would be okay too.

I know I can set the auto-save-visited-file-name variable so that
auto-saves write to the original file; but unless I could do this on a
per-buffer basis I surely wouldn't want this as global behaviour.

You can set any variable on a per-buffer basis:

(set (make-local-variable 'auto-save-visited-file-name) t)

Try putting that in the file itself, either as the first line

# -*- eval: (set ...) -*-

or at the end

### Local Variables:
### eval: (set ...)
### End:
