sshd in the host system binding to all interfaces (which is the default)
will block sshd in the jail from binding to the jail's IP.  In fact, it
will probably cause sshd to fail to start in the jail.  You should have
something in your syslog in the jail if that is the case.

Make the sshd in your host system bind to specific IP numbers using the
'ListenAddress' parameter.
