posixAccount is auxiliary. From RFC 2307:

        ( nisSchema.2.0 NAME 'posixAccount' SUP top AUXILIARY
          DESC 'Abstraction of an account with POSIX attributes'
          MUST ( cn $ uid $ uidNumber $ gidNumber $ homeDirectory )
          MAY ( userPassword $ loginShell $ gecos $ description ) )
