Thanks for the reply ! But no such luck : 

#group:     db files nisplus nis

passwd:     files winbind
shadow:     files winbind
group:      files winbind

#hosts:     db files nisplus nis dns
hosts:      files dns

# Example - obey only what nisplus tells us...
#services:   nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
