     If no command is specified, you will be logged in on the remote host us-
     ing rlogin(1).

i.e.,
if you don't give a command the behaviour is governed by the in.rlogind line
in inetd.conf, not the in.rshd line.

Whether you need a password or not also depends on the settings in
/etc/pam.d/rlogin.
A further comment: if you do allow rsh without password, you should have
a line
in.rshd : ALL 
in your /etc/hosts.deny file (actually I believe that file should contain
the single line "ALL : ALL") and then specify the hosts that you want to
connect to via rsh in /etc/hosts.allow.
