Description

The access_log directive from the ngx_http_log_module component only supports emitting RFC3164 log records when logging to syslog. RFC5424 has been the standard for syslog logging for twelve years now and should be supported.

I've found this on 1.18.x but can't find anything in the documentation to suggest it's changed since.

For the record, FreeBSD is using RFC 5424 syslog format since 12.0, see here. Glibc is still using RFC 3164, see here.
