You are right, here is proper one:

#%PAM-1.0                                                                       
auth            sufficient      /lib/security/pam_rootok.so                     
auth            required        /lib/security/pam_unix.so                       
account         required        /lib/security/pam_permit.so                     
#password        required        /lib/security/pam_make.so /var/db
