That's completely normal.  IT's an information log, not a warning or an error.

Template0 is your "man, I really screwed up template1" get out of jail
free database.  It is normally set to not allow connections (look at
"select * from pg_databases;" for the field that does or doesn't allow
connections).  If you ever did terrible things to templat1, you could
set template0 to datallowcon=t and then drop and recreate template1
using template0 as the template.  Then vacuum freeze it and set it to
not allow connections again to template0 to get it back to normal
