Your /etc/aliases must look like:

root: sys...@example.com

>From man page:

             An email address in RFC 5322 format.  If an address extension is
             appended to the user-part, it is first compared for an exact
             match.  It is then stripped so that an address such as
             user+...@example.com will only use the part that precedes `+' as
             a key.
