The whole line?  The CVS passwd has a different format than /etc/passwd;
if /etc/shadow has the same format as /etc/passwd, that's not correct. 
But it wouldn't cause the problem you're having.

That means that inetd accepted the connection but was unable to start
the server or the server exited.  Since you're running tcpd, the most
likely scenario was that tcpd denied the connection -- check your log
files for messages from tcpd.  The other possibilities are that you have
the path to tcpd and/or cvs wrong in /etc/inetd.conf.
