Arch currently sets up using journald via stderr with the same log level for everything:


ExecStart=/usr/bin/nginx -g 'pid /run/; error_log stderr;'

It would be nicer to use the syslog support to set the severity and time metadata in a structured way.

Can remove SyslogLevel=err and change it to the following:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/nginx -g 'pid /run/; error_log syslog:server=unix:/dev/log,nohostname;'

The nohostname parameter should be used for local logging since it already has the hostname and there isn't a separate remote one.
