I am looking to replace the default logo in all our Magento transactional emails.

Using the "Welcome Email" template as a test, I've added our logo as an SVG file. This displays fine with all of the different email accounts I am able to test.

Is using SVG images in emails considered to be acceptable practice or should I switch to using a different format?

    As with a lot of CSS, email clients are woefully inadequate at display and it's quite easy to shoot yourself in the foot trying out stuff that's "too new". Nov 1, 2014 at 15:06

From this test, I would say that most clients don't support it well enough.
