I have no idea. xinetd should be spawning off the equivalent of:

/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot

You can add the -v (for verbosity) to /etc/xinetd.d/tftp (same line as
the -s /var/lib/tftpboot), but don't add the -L (man in.tftpd will
explain why that is incorrect).

If you can't localhost connect to your tftp server, you have bigger
issues, and I don't think they involve tftp.
