how to log sshd access in a single file

just a few days ago i setup my first FreeBSD server, so i am new to this OS.
I already tried to find the information i was looking for, but to no luck.
I try to add a line in /etc/hosts.allow which would allow and log all
attempts using SSH (sshd).
I found http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/tcpwrappers.html, which
mentions twist as the only way to accomplish this.
So i created a line in allow.hosts which reads as follows:
sshd : ALL : twist /bin/echo "a% from h% attempted to acces d%" >> \
\var\log\ssh-connections.log : allow
sshd for the service
ALL for all ip-addresses
allow to allow access
and the text in between should make sure that the file ssh-connections is
The file already exists, i used root access to create it.
But it does not work as expected.
Could you please point me where i did it wrong.
Thanks in advance for your help.
