problems with nis

I am trying to use the nis package in debian. I have it
setup as a master. When I boot up my system I get the
following message.
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: No bound server for domain Chipper
Once I have finished the boot if I do a ypcat hosts
the sae message appears. If I then start a ppp link
the message goes away and everything is fine. This
causes a problem with atrun. If I dont start ppp
and leave my system on for a few hours I start getting
the following mail once every minute to root.
Date: Fri, 10 May 96 09:25 EDT
From: Cron Daemon <root@snee>
To: root@snee
Subject: Cron <root@snee> atrun -d -l 0.5

YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: No bound server for domain Chipper

Everything was in their initial state execpt that I did
everything in the /usr/doc/nis/nis.debian.howto file to
setup a master server.
My question is why will nis not work unless I start ppp.
Any help would be appreciated cause I have looked everywhere.
