In my Solaris 8 system the PAM behaves this way:

 1)  When the telnet and sshd items are present  then telnetd uses the
telnet item and sshd uses the sshd item.

2)  When the telnet and sshd items are not present then telnetd and sshd use
the "other" item.

3)  The "login" item is not used by telnetd and sshd in my system.

This behaviour I tested.
