DESCRIPTION
     ypwhich returns the name of the NIS server that supplies the
     NIS  name  services  to a NIS client, or which is the master
     for a map. If invoked without arguments, it  gives  the  NIS
     server  for  the  local  machine.  If hostname is specified,
     that machine is queried to find out which NIS master  it  is
     using.
