not sure, here it is:

# NOTE: The hosts.deny file is deprecated.
# Place both 'allow' and 'deny' rules in the hosts.allow file.
# See hosts_options(5) for the format of this file.
# hosts_access(5) no longer fully applies.
# Protect against simple DNS spoofing attacks by checking that the
# forward and reverse records for the remote host match. If a mismatch
# occurs, access is denied, and any positive ident response within
# 20 seconds is logged. No protection is afforded against DNS poisoning,
# IP spoofing or more complicated attacks. Hosts with no reverse DNS
# pass this rule.
