xinetd IPv6 support is somewhat strange, but I never actually tested
things with xinet IPv6, but that's what I could imagine as point of

As a test, would you try this:

a) from http://cr.yp.to/ucspi-tcp.html, fetch the current package and
install (it drops some files into /usr/local/bin)

b) disable nntp in your xinetd configuration, give xinetd a SIGUSR1 so
it re-reads its configuration

c) run 

        /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -HRv 0 119 \
        /usr/local/bin/argv0 /usr/sbin/tcpd \

Adjust the paths as required, particularly the path to tcpd and
leafnode. Note that tcpserver does not detach.

If that kills your problem, it's likely to be inetd or xinetd.
If that does NOT help, we need further investigation.
