All three will do for a basic multilevel model for the odds 
(not the hazard) of survival. If you want to model a 
multilevel model for the hazard of survival you can use 
-gllamm- with the cll link function. The difference between 
-xtlogit- and -xtmelogit- is that the latter can accomodate 
more complex multilevel structures.

Hope this helps,
