No. Don't muck around with it. You need to upgrade to -3, period.
It's probably not in 'testing' yet - get it from 'unstable',
either by temporarily changing /etc/apt/sources.list or by
ftp'ing it directly from ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/n/nis

-1 and -2 have several other serious problems. Don't use those
versions. -3 is a major upgrade.
