Something funny is that my old MZ-6 (ZX-L over there...) can do wireless HSS using the built-in flash... I tried yesterday...

How come they removed this feature in DSLR cameras???

Kenyee's point is a good one. It is the duration of the flash, not the shutter speed that freezes the motion. This assumes that your camera settings not allowing any ambient light to affect the resulting exposure.

Let's say the flash burst lasts 1/1000th of a second, and your shutter is set to 1/180th of a second. If, your 1/180th second shutter, f-stop, and ISO produce a purely black image with no flash, then the image you get with the flash will be what was illuminated for the 1/1000th of a second that the flash was active.
Good explanation
