I use a combination of /etc/login.defs and the faillog utility to set this.

Set maximum number of login failures after the account is disabled
to MAX. Selecting MAX value of 0 has the effect of not placing a
limit on the number of failed logins. The maximum failure count
should always be 0 for root to prevent a denial of services attack
against the system.
