sshd starts after network.target, and listens on 0.0.0.0 and :: by
default, so unless you've modified it to listen on a specific address
which isn't yet up, it shouldn't matter.
Check out what journalctl -xe _SYSTEMD_UNIT=ssh.service; says to see why
it failed to start, and that should tell you what's actually going on.

Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure.
We get very little wisdom from success, you know.
