ypwhich displays are inconsistent
When you use ypwhich
several times on the same client, the
resulting display may vary because the NIS server changes.
This is normal.
The binding of NIS client to NIS server
changes over time when the network or the NIS servers are busy.
Whenever possible, the network stabilizes at a point where all
clients get acceptable response time from the NIS servers.
As long as your client machine gets NIS service, it does not
matter where the service comes from.
For example, one NIS server
machine can get its own NIS services from another
NIS server on the network.
