Any banner message in /etc/motd is displayed on a direct connected login session (Login session on console and serial ttys, modem getty sessions). You can also use the same file as a banner for telnet user. For this edit the /etc/inetd.conf file and add the banner option in the telnetd line. Take a look at this thread from ITRC on how to do that,
