I don't know if there is a proper systemctl way to do this, but
syslog.service should be a symlink to your preferred logger, in my case
it's rsyslog.service, but syslog-ng works as well.

Put the symlink in multi user target or some other regularly invoked
target.  Since you don't have the link you probably have some red [FAIL]
text at the very beginning of every boot.
