Where do messages sent with syslog go when there is only a journal?

Hi,

where do messages sent with syslog go when there is only a journal?  When 
using Sys::Syslog, there don't seem to be any messages in the journal.

Does Sys::Syslog need to updated?

Hopefully they don't make it systemd only. Some of us still use 
non-systemd systems.   :)

Huh, news to me:
https://www.loggly.com/ultimate-guide/using-journalctl/

cpan shows at least 5 modules for handling journald stuff, Log::Journald
shows
use Log::Journald;
use Sys::Syslog qw/:macros/;

# Easy.
journal_log(LOG_INFO, "Hello (1) from PID $$!");

# Send arbitrary fields, even binary data
Log::Journald::send(PRIORITY => LOG_INFO,
     MESSAGE => "Hello (2) from PID $$!",
     PERL_PACKAGE => __PACKAGE__,
     _YOLO => "SW\x00AG")
     or warn "Could not send log: $!";

# Raw
Log::Journald::sendv('PRIORITY=6',
     "MESSAGE=Hello (3) from PID $$!");
