reply_log is in the post_auth section of the config, which is run on 
successful authentication.

However, failed authentications run through the post-auth 
"Post-Auth-Type REJECT" section. To log failures you'll need to add 
reply_log (or similar) to that section, too, e.g.

post-auth {
   Post-Auth-Type REJECT {
