From inetd(8) manpage:
"The optional ``max'' suffix (separated from ``wait'' or ``nowait'' by a
dot or a colon) specifies the maximum number of server instances that
may be spawned from inetd within an interval of 60 seconds. When
omitted, ``max'' defaults to 40."
Thus just modify your ftp settings in /etc/inetd.conf to something like:
ftp stream tcp nowait:400 root /usr/libexec/ftpd ftpd -l
