I have noticed that my clients are not declared in
/etc/hosts if I put them in /etc/hosts (and in nis
table to be useful) everything is find.

Nevertheless I don t understand how the nfs can make a
resolution via dns of a a client whith a private
Perhaps does the server reply it it s impossible and
everything is fine to log it 

But thanks a lot, it s certainly the SYSTEM LOG that
is implied ... I ll check it ... ...now it seems me a
little bit more logical !

I was so lost that I have thought they were magical
dark spirits behind this :)
