If you want a nice message, I suggest creating a class in
/etc/logins.conf which point to a /etc/issues.sftponly file where the
user gets a nice message, which you deem appropriate.
Secondly, as far as chroot, I don't believe OpenSSH supports chroot
natively, however I know there is a patch floating around (I believe in
the contrib/ directory of the openssh portable tarball) which will patch
openssh to support chroot'd environments. You will need to recompile
the openssh portable distribution, however.
