tcpd wants the names of the program to run, not the name of the service.
So change the line above to something like this:

# hosts.allow

Please read the documentation that comes with xinetd then:
  man xinetd xinetd.conf
  man 5 hosts_access
  man chkconfig

Have a look at /etc/xinetd.conf resp. the files within /etc/xinetd.d,
look for the leafnode entry therein.  Adapt the access restriction given
there.  Please quote these if you cannot get it to work, but note that I
don't have a RedHat distro myself, so please check for yourself.
