The problem is it thinks your client is the NIS master which I gather from your comments is not the case:

localhost.localdomain = The host you are on (i.e. the client NOT the master). You need to modify your client's config so it knows where the real master is.

I haven't done NIS in years so can't tell you where that config file is but hopefully the hint will lead you to better searching.
