That should probably be "cvspserver" rather than "cvs".

If "cvspserver" is defined as port 2401 in /etc/services, which it
should be, you don't need that line (although it doesn't hurt).

When running as root, the group is irrelevant and can be omitted.

You should have a -f in there, too.

That could be because of the missing -f in server_args. If that doesn't
fix it, add "passenv = PATH" to your xinetd configuration.

That indicates that the user you're running as doesn't have write
permission in /usr/local/cvsroot.
