I'd really use it the way you're told to do it in the nnrpd manual page:
Run it via xinetd. nnrpd takes close to no time coming up, so you don't
need to have it there as a daemon.

This has two advantages: You can change readers.conf and others and it
will pick up the changes on the next client connecet - and it can be run
as user news via xinetd, which is not possible when you run it
standalone, as it has to be run as root to bind to port 563.
