Only /bin/login uses /var/adm/loginlog. It only adds entries to that
log after RETRIES failed attempts. RETRIES is set in /etc/default/login
and is 5 by default.
If you are interested in failed login attempts I strongly suggest you
use BSM audit instead. See bsmconv(1m) for details, you need only setup
the audit class lo. The attach document shows you all you need to get
