So it means jail2 should be fixed, because it runs
jail -c -i -J /var/run/jail_${_j}.id ${_j}
for each jail from jail2_list="jailA jailB"

Is there a way to disable jail defined in jail.conf? (to avoid 
jail2_list in rc.conf)

And what happens if there is jail2_list="jailA jailB" in rc.conf and 
jailB is defined in jail.conf as dependency of jailA? I guess rc.d/jail2 
will try to start jailB again.
It will be started as dependency of jailA by first jail command starting 
Or new jail(8) doesn't start the "depend" jail automatically and just 
check its existence?
I didn't try it yet.
