As far as I can tell this worked.  I set "auth.!=info" in the section
about /var/log/messages and put in a separate entry for "auth.info" to
go to /var/log/authinfo (just in case somebody else is using auth.info
too).  This way I don't lose the auth.info messages, but
/var/log/messages remains uncluttered.

Many thanks!

b.t.w.: you can already turn it of in syslog. The messages you specify 
are sent with INFO priority.

In syslogd.conf you can specify
auth;auth.!=info         /var/log/auth.log
to silence these messages.

See man syslogd.conf

Jailkit logs to the LOG_AUTH facility and uses levels LOG_ERR and 
LOG_CRIT for serious errors, LOG_NOTICE for non-critical errors, and 
LOG_INFO for messages that indicate expected behavior.
