It means:
In order to use pinpad input, scdaemon asked PC/SC service to get code
GET_FEATURE_REQUEST command.  But failed.

In this point, scdaemon had no way to use pinpad input.

I haven't got any report for OS X about pinpad input.

I think that scdaemon's apdu.c assumes using PC/SC-lite on OS X.
If not, I think that we need to fix the line 248-259 of apdu.c,

Could you please check your PC/SC service and version?
