Xball is the older name for what is now the race-to format. Original Xball was played in the same manner, but instead of racing to a number of points, teams would score as many points as possible in a certain time. The time limit, and whether or not there was a half-time, depend on the rendition of Xball from year-to-year.
If there's a tournament that is playing "race-to-4 Xball," they're playing what is now called the race-to-4 format, but used to be called Xball. It is no different from PSP's race-to-4, unless rule/format differences are specified..
