[Samba] unable to make NIS synchronization function

I am unable to make NIS synchronization function on my instance (2.2.8
on Solaris 8). My [global] section follows...
The biggest issue is that passwd chat debug outputs nothing to the logs
making it quite difficult to troubleshoot.
Docs are not clear enough to explain if you can have passwd chat AND
passwd program present in the global section at the same time (and have
it work). Passwd program by itself does not work.
My samba instance is NOT on my NIS master host (I am trying to run
passwd synchronization on an NIS client).
workgroup = MYGROUP
netbios name = MYHOST
server string = Samba Test Instance
encrypt passwords = Yes
min passwd length = 6
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = passwd chat = "*Enter login(NIS)
password*"%o\n"*New password*" %n\n "*Re-enter new password*" %n\n
passwd chat debug = Yes
unix password sync = Yes
log level = 3
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
wins server = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
