I'll add some cautions to the man page.
The jail is found by an loop through the sysctl security.jail.list
and comparing argv against ip-number and hostname.
The first matching jail is used then.
Makes sense only for those who keep their jails uniquely identifyable 
by hostname or ip-number, of corse.
