I followed the advice in the systemd wiki for arch - and created
/var/log/journal/ and also limited the file size using the parameters
in the conf file as per the wiki advice.
Then also did systemctl enable syslog-ng.service which ensures that
syslog-ng is started at next boot - however I have not yet tried to
merge the syslog-ng and journal entries as per the wiki as I felt it
best to check things one step at a time - after the next boot I can
see normal syslog-ng messages in /var/log/messages.log and can read
the systemd journal using journalctl with its available parameters.
If you revert the merge changes in syslog-ng.conf do you see the
output in both the streams as per my experience above? If not then
that needs fixing first and then I guess you can try to merge the two
