You can't start rsyncd this way.  Remember, rsyncd used inetd; it
wasn't a normal service.  inetd only started it when something
connected to its socket, and systemd will refuse to start it until
something connects to its socket as well.

You need only start "rsyncd.socket" for the service to work.
