As they say, if all else fails, read the documentation. In this case, it
suggests to go to rosuda.org, or Simon's rforge.net to find:

     It can be shut down gracefully (i.e. it will wait until all existing
     connections are finished) if it recieves shutdown command from an
     authorized connection.

which answers your question.

Nice to know Mother Merrill is trusting Rserve too ...
