Google for "what is xinetd" is a good place to start.
Basically, xinetd is a "wrapper" of sorts for daemons. It allows you to control daemons through a centralized facility, rather than separate /etc/init.d scripts. This is over simplified, but Google will help with the details.
PS - "qmail" from plesk is not qmail, despite what Plesk tells you. They ship binaries that are obviously derived from qmail, but it is *not* qmail. It is also illegal b/c it violates the qmail license.
