using innd with tcp_wrappers

I'm trying to restrict access to my server by using hosts.deny and hosts.allow.
The problem I'm having is that if I put


in hosts.deny, then my users can no longer get access to news groups. Does 
anyone know the magic words to place into hosts.allow to unblock
newsgroup access? I allow use of port 119 only on the server itself (for 
whomever is sitting at the console), via the innd service. I allow outside 
connections only on port 563, via an xinetd service (the two use different 
readers.conf files).

Any help would be appreciated.
