And if this reassurance is not convincing there is


  With my rsyslog (and systemd maintainer) hat on, let me add a few
  remarks here:

  We still do install rsyslog by default and will continue to do so for
  the forseeable future (for reasons like the one you mentioned).

  So your text-based logs won't be gone with the switch to systemd.
  Let me repeat that: Jessie will have text-based logs, nothing in that
  regard changes.
  Actually it does: systemd can feed additional information into syslog
  (e.g. from daemons stdout/stderr), so you'll get a syslog with more
  complete information when running under systemd.

  As for journald, we currently don't enable persistent logging in
  journald (persistent logging can be done by creating a folder
  /var/log/journal with the appropriate permissions).
