Public bug reported:

Distribution: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Package version: syslog-ng 3.5.6-2.1

When installing syslog-ng and dependent packages on Ubuntu Xenial
16.04.3 LTS, it leaves syslog in a state there the integration with
journald is broken

1. /etc/systemd/system/syslog.service is left as a dead link to 
It should be linked to /lib/systemd/system/syslog-ng.service
This subsequently calls syslog.socket which makes syslog-ng the server end of 
/run/systemd/journal/syslog socket

2. /dev/log is still a socket.  It should be a link to
/run/systemd/journal/journal/dev-log which allows journald to read
application log data from the GNU C library's syslog() function

In this state, journald events will not be in syslog
