The PHP implementation is likely using the native syslog() method.   
log4j does not call the syslog() method (which would require JNI),  
but creates the same network traffic that a call to syslog() would  
make to a remote syslogd.  That approach is portable but requires  
that syslogd be configured to accept network traffic even if coming  
from localhost.

There is an enhancement request (http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/ 
show_bug.cgi?id=27363) with an associated submission to implement a  
JNI-based SyslogAppender, though I have not reviewed it.
