you could use pam to deny root access with the pam_listfile module

in /etc/pam.d/ssh add the line :
auth    required        pam_listfile.so item=user sense=deny file=/etc/sshuser onerr=succeed

and put the deny's user line by line
you'll have the 1~3 delay then and a authentification failure for root
without the 'PermitRootLogin no'
