    • SysLog
    • User Datagram Protocol (UDP)

Answer

SysLog, by default, uses User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port 514. Contrary to Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), UDP does not require a handshake from the receiving end. As long as the message was able to be sent out, it will be marked as successful on the sender's side.
