xxxxxx-232 and xxxxxx-209 appear to be two different hostnames, and you 
might want to check why one is running "pdns", one is running 
"pdns_server", and some logs show the PID and some don't. Basically 
those logs are too obfuscated to be meaningful. 

journalctl is going to show the logs which are coming directly from 
powerdns on stdout/stderr.

Apart from that, I think you'd be better off asking your question on an 
rsyslog mailing list, since powerdns has no control over how rsyslog 
processes or writes logs.
