"The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System" (ISBN
978-0201702453) was a good starting point for me.
As for understanding the internals of the jail mechanism in detail, you
will need to familiarize yourself with at least parts of the source of
the system. The man pages (apropos jail) will provide some entry points.
There is an introductory paper written by Poul-Henning Kamp and Robert
N.M. Watson available at http://phk.freebsd.dk/pubs/sane2000-jail.pdf,
which might help you getting started.
Other documents at http://phk.freebsd.dk/pubs/ might be of interest, also.
