Well, cron and at have to be invoked locally at the machine, so they just take a list of usernames, whereas hosts.{allow,deny} take list of host name or IP addresses combined with network services.

Why don't you check the documentation omn these oarticular files to be sure?

For the syntax to use with hosts.{allow,deny} see...

Code:
man 5 hosts_access
I recently needed that and found it a little obscure to locate on the spur of the moment!
