That's up to the client. Which client are you using?

The documented client-server protocol states that the server responds to a
good authentication with "I LOVE YOU" and to a bad authentication with "I
HATE YOU". However, that protocol is strictly between the client program and
the server program - what the client application displays to the end user is
entirely independent of the protocol.

The client available at - which this list primarily discusses -
displays a message like "cvs [command]: authorization failed: server
[servername] rejected access to [repository] for user [username]"
