I found this:

>If you would like to restrict the use of the su command, then we can limit it to the members of a specific group called wheel. This group is defined in the /etc/group file by default and it's membership can be modified by root. In order to limit su to the wheel group members we need to modify a configuration file called /etc/pam.d/su

maybe it will be useful
