Yes, ypbind will broadcast only within the subnet. In general, that's
how any broadcast-based software works. It's a bad idea to use
broadcasts for NIS anyway, though, you should explicitly give it a list
of servers to use. As I recall you set those up in /etc/yp.conf, check
the man page for ypbind for the syntax of that file.
