It scrolls both for me. Two things:

(1) To scroll the preview (i.e., the PDF), it needs to be the active  
window (you probably knew this, but just in case...).

(2) The display format must be set to a multipage format to scroll  
from page to page. See:

     Preview > Display Format

Though even in a single page format, if the magnification is large  
enough (i.e., it only shows part of the page), the scroll wheel  
should still work. Heck, on my Logitech mouse, the scroll wheel even  
allows sideways scrolling and even this works in TeXShop's preview (I  
don't have Logitech's software installed since I don't really like it).

I hope this helps.
