I have a fix, Ian was the first one to correctly get the answer, which
I included below. The problem was:

NIS new database files don't get transferred with yppush. The yppush
would die after about 5 minutes saying it couldn't transfer.
> Try copying the files by rcp to the slave server once (to the yp
> directory). I'm not sure why this is the case, but it seems that
> the maps have to be on the slave to be transferred. After the first
> time, ypxfr should be able to handle the map.

This solved the problem, by rcp'ing the .dir and .pag files to the slave
server, the file now pushes correctly. Thanks everyone!
