Are the clients using broadcast or pointing directly to the master? Check /etc/yp.conf. If they are using broadcast, then they should find the slave when the master is off. Might have to remove the /var/yp on the clients remove cached settings.
otherwise you can set them to connect to the slave/new master in yp.conf.
