That indicates that there's no "--allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot" option
in the command to start the server.

Unless you're running an ancient version of CVS, the "-b/usr/bin" is
completely superfluous.  You should, however, have a "-f" option.  If
that's your current config file, then either you've made changes without
forcing xinetd to re-read it, or you have a very subtle typo somewhere.
