That depends on what else you are trying to accomplish.  The simplest approach is to change the Port parameter in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.  Then you don't need to do anything with pf.  However, if you are filtering other things with pf you might want to consider blocking port 22 in pf and then redirecting port 1024 to port 22 on the local machine.  The best way depends on what else you plan on doing.
