 It's not hard to find (once you to look for it:):

bigfoot:~# apt-cache search less console
aview - An high quality ascii-art image(pgm) browser
console-log - Keeps a less syslog running on tty9
konsole - X terminal emulation for KDE

 The winner is ...  console-log.

Description: Keeps a less syslog running on tty9
 console-log keeps your syslog and your exim mainlog running in a less
 process on tty9/tty8. It also makes sure that this console is visible
 automatically after system boot so that a crashed system at least
 leaves the syslog readable on the console before reset. Using less
 makes searching, tagging and highlighting possible.
apt-cache is your friend.  Learn how to use its features :)
