Specifically, http://lists.gnu.org/r/groff/2023-04/msg00036.html and the next two replies in the thread (the thread is long and covers multiple topics, and the subject line gives no hint that it talks about cover pages at one point).

Recent groff mailing list traffic has revealed that people do some surprising things to try to get ms to format a cover sheet.

Our ms.ms manual, or an "Advanced ms Users' Guide", should offer some advice for how to do this.
