That's strange. tcpd (or libwrap FWIW) usually uses /etc/hosts.allow and

looks sound, but try

leafnode : : ALLOW
leafnode : ALL : DENY

In hosts.access or hosts.allow.

Because Mandrake Linux 8.2's xinetd is compiled against libwrap, you can
also try a configuration like this:

        service nntp
            socket_type     = stream
            protocol        = tcp
            wait            = no
            user            = news
            server          = /usr/local/sbin/leafnode
            instances       = 7
            per_source      = 3
