More specifically the document RFC2307 [and RFC2307bis] define the LDAP
schema for replicating the behavior and data-model of NIS using an LDAP
DSA. Generally it has come to mean UNIX groups and accounts in LDAP.
These days I imagine in most cases the schema defined in RFC2307 is used
with things like winbind and NSS_LDAP rather than with NIS [also known
as Yellow Pages, and there is (or was) NIS+ as well].
