Bug#926305: nis startup scripts are completely broken

Anton Ivanov-8
That is not an advice.

If nscd is a required dependency, NIS should bring it in.

Presently it is not.

Still broken

This is not a "must have"

The advice is also mentioned in the changelog:

  * Drop -no-dbus from YPBINDARGS= in /etc/default/nis.
    We no longer build nis with NetworkManager/D-Bus support, so setting
    this option made ypbind fail to start. (Closes: #906436)

So setting "YPBINDARGS=" in /etc/default/nis should be your first step to get
nis working in buster ;-)
