I tried this, my default virt server conf look like this:
Post-Auth-Type REJECT {
                update reply {
                        &Module-Failure-Message :=
                # log failed authentications in SQL, too.

But the error still not appears in the detail log file. I got Access-Reject
with Reply-Message: "Hello, bob"
Tue Jan  8 15:46:01 2019
        Packet-Type = Access-Reject
        Reply-Message = "Hello, bob"
        Timestamp = 1546958761

Any idea what's wrong?

Linelog is another possibility, but as long as we could modify detail log
behaviour with little work, I would not jump into a fully start linelog
