Again with my admin hat it should not it.
It should provide the admin with the means to take actions if an failure
occurs since in large deployments you might want send different email
depending on which service is failing like sending
hostmaster at example.com mail if bind goes down, webmaster at example.com if
apache goes down etc. and at the same time take other action like
potentially trigger abrt to send bug report or revert changes and
restart the daemon etc. as opposed to pipe a simple mail notification to
root and systemd provides exactly that to admins via OnFailure= see man
systemd.unit for details...
