Error when running a script with cron.

I have written a basic bash script to stop and restart xinetd as part of a
cleanup routine for a server we run.. When run from a prompt it runs
perfectly.. I have scheduled it to run every night as a cron job and every
night I get an email with the following error..

/etc/init.d/xinetd: 75: start-stop-daemon: not found
/etc/init.d/xinetd: 75: start-stop-daemon: not found

I can't figure out why..

Can anyone give me any ideas??

The script is simply..

eval "service xinetd stop"
sleep 5
< run cleaup commands >
sleep 5
eval "service xinetd start"

Thanks for any thoughts..
