Hi Mag, 
I personally have never seen this error, but I do want to mention
that the easiest way to find out what these types of errors are
is to use google on the "best fragment" of the error message.

The best fragment is the portion with no process numbers in it.
That way you'll get google hits on the portions that anyone who
has had it before would have already posted, and peoples posted
solutions to it.

so If i were you I would try googling on something like: 
ypserv refused connect from to procedure  ypproc_match domain.com,passwd.adjunct.byname

if that doesn't work, try again without the

You are bound to get previous email threads/forums hits if they
exist.  You'll always get better help if you show the people that
you've made an good effort at the basic search rather than asking
here first.
