try this instead:

grep ^tftp /etc/inetd.conf

As the superdaemon inetd (usually) handles the tftp daemon, you won't
see tftp when it is not in active use.

Beware that the default for inetd is to only allow 40 requests for each
port each minute - and each TFTP dialogue often consists of several
requests. Change the "wait" part of the tftpd line to "wait.500" to
raise that limit. Took me some time to figure out that (as nothing was
written in log files - suddently TFTP request just silently was ignored
for some minutes and the worked again...).
