In many utilities, jail 0 is shorthand for the non-jailed system
itself.  Or if you're running withing a jail, it means the jail you're
currently running in (as the system itself is inaccessible).  Not all
utilities support this notation; notably jail(8) itself only deals
with visible jails and not the containing system.
