Try running the Docker container in privileged mode (docker run --privileged); 
I think this will allow the necessary Guix  services dependencies of the syslog 
service to run.

I forgot the details, bit I think it has to do with syslog depending on 
something you'd have on a real system but not in a container.

I think I've used the emacs-guix package to see the dependency graphs of 
services and that helped me IIRC. Plus peaking in the services source code.
