daemon: Add --log-target=journal to pulseaudio.service

When running under systemd from its `.service` file, the daemon is
started with `--daemonize=no`. This means that the default logging
target is `stderr` (see the documentation for `--log-target` in
`pulse-daemon.conf(5)`). That works fine, but results in all the
structured logging data from the `pa_log()` calls being thrown away and
not making it into the journal.

In order to preserve structured logging data, and hence make the
messages in the journal a little more useful (for example, allowing the
user to filter by message priority), explicitly pass
`--log-target=journal` in the `.service` file. This should always be
appropriate because the journal should always be used with systemd.
