The VNC server depends on what type of domain is being run. For HVM guests
the VNC server is provided by the qemu-dm process assoicated with that
guest. For paravirt guests, VNC is only available if you have the paravirt
framebuffer patches applied to your xen tree - these are not in xen-unstable
yet. In paravirt, XenD will launch a xen-vncfb process to provide the VNC
server. So in both case all you need to do is set 'vnc=1' in the guest
config file & XenD will ensure the VNC servers are started as required.
