Add the the users who should be able to su to root to the 'wheel' group:
In /etc/group:


From su(1) manpage:

PAM is used to set the policy su(1) will use.  In particular, by default
only users in the ``wheel'' group can switch to UID 0 (``root'').
This group requirement may be changed by modifying the ``pam_group''
section of /etc/pam.d/su.  See pam_group(8) for details on how to modify
this setting.
