You're looking for the yp* packages (Yellow Pages, changed to NIS to avoid
legal issues :-)

$ yum list "yp*"
yp-tools.x86_64                          2.8-7                  base 
ypbind.x86_64                            3:1.17.2-3             base 
ypserv.x86_64                            2.13-5                 base
