Try with following lines. It is working for me without any problem.
auth required pam_tally.so no_magic_root
account required pam_tally.so per_user deny=5 no_magic_root reset
Let me know.

Thanks Joe, but as per documents, deny and unlock_time are auth options, not thee account options. When I changed the config as you mentioned:
account required pam_tally.so deny=2
the error "unknown option deny" stopped coming but it didn't make any difference in the time it waits after wrong passwd, even if I make it 20. The version, I can't change because of some dependency reasons.
