What is -a option? Does it use tcp wrappers?
Did you read the man page
man ftpd


ftpd is the Internet File Transfer Protocol server process. The
server uses the TCP protocol and listens at the port specified in
the ftp service specification; see services(SFF).

ftpd is started by the super server inetd, and therefore must
have an entry in inetd's configuration file, /etc/inetd.conf. See
inetd(ADMN) and inetd.conf(SFF).
Specify that the access file, /etc/ftpaccess, must be
present. This is the default behavior.

proftpd - Professional configurable, secure file transfer protocol server SYNOPSIS
proftpd [ -hlntv ] [ -c config-file ] [ -d debuglevel ] [ -p 0|1 ] DESCRIPTION
proftpd is the Professional File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server daemon. The server may be invoked by the Internet "super-server" inetd(8) each time a connection to the FTP service is made, or alternatively it can be run as a standalone daemon. When proftpd is run in standalone mode and it receives a SIGHUP then it will reread its configuration file. When run in standalone mode without the -n option, the main proftpd daemon writes its process ID to /var/run/proftpd.pid to make it easy to know which process to SIGHUP. OPTIONS
-h,--help Display a short usage description, including all available options. -n,--nodaemon Runs the proftpd process in standalone mode (must be configured as such in the configuration file), but does not background the process or disassociate it from the controlling tty. Additionally, all output (log or debug messages) are sent to stderr, rather than the syslog mechanism. Most often used with the -d option for debugging. -q,--quiet Quiet mode; don't send logging information to standard error when running with the -n option. -v,--version Displays the version number of ProFTPD to stdout. -D,--define parameter Sets a configuration parameter which can be used <IfDefine>...</IfDefine> sections in the configuration files to conditionally skip or process commands. -d,--debug debuglevel Sets proftpd's internal debug level (normally 0). The debuglevel should be an integer value from 0 to 10, with higher numbers producing more debug output. Normally, debug messages are sent to syslog using the DEBUG facility, however if the -n option is used, all such output is sent to stderr. -c,--config config-file Specifies an alternate config-file to be parsed at startup, rather than the default configuration file. The default configura- tion file is /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf -N,--nocollision Disables address/port collision checking. -V,--settings Displays various compile-time settings and exits. -S,--serveraddr Specifies an IP address for the host machine, avoiding an DNS lookup of the hostname -t,--configtest Read the configuration file, report any syntax errors, and exit. -p,--persistent 0|1 Disables (0) or enables (1) the default persistent password support, which is determined at configure time for each platform. This option only affects the default support, it can still be overridden at run-time with the PersistentPasswd directive. -l,--list Lists all modules compiled into proftpd. -4,--ipv4 Support IPv4 functionality only, regardless of whether the --enable-ipv6 configure option was used. -6,--ipv6 Support IPv6 connections and lookup of IPv6 addresses for server DNS names. This is enabled by default, if the --enable-ipv6 configure option is used. FILES
