Why does rsh still work?

On my Debian 3 sparc machine there is no rshd running and there is no shell 
or login entry in /etc/inetd.conf.  There is an sshd process.  I am still 
able to rsh in from a Debian 3 i386 machine.  From a RH6.1 I get connection 
refused when I try to rsh to the Debian 3 sparc machine.  

On the Rh6.1 machine in /etc/inetd.conf I commented out the shell and login 
entries and restarted inetd.  The Rh6.1 machine has SSH2 sshd running.  I can 
still rsh into the RH machine from the Debian 3 i386.

Is it possible that OpenSSH and SSH2 both handle rsh logins?  

My attempts at STFW have not yielded a direct answer...yet.
