Mine works fine with IPv6 and CentOS 5.2.

[root at mirror ~]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/rsync
# default: off

allows crc checksumming etc.
service rsync
    disable = no
    socket_type     = stream
    wait            = no
    user            = root
    server          = /usr/bin/rsync
    server_args     = --daemon
    log_on_failure  += USERID
    flags           = IPv6

Make sure you reload xinetd when making these changes.
