Once you have a traditional syslog daemon installed and running,
forwarding journald's output to syslog is as simple as adding this line
Then you can add one of these:
Storage=volatile # keeps a small in-memory log buffer
Storage=none # disables all log retention, forwarding only.
BTW, with journald forward to syslog you get the best of all worlds --
systemd+journald captures *everything* a process emits (ie
stdout/stderr) instead only what was explicitly sent to syslog. IME
that feature has proven itself to be invaluable.
