I've used yp in FBSD for some time now. I've never ran across this 
particular issue though, until now.

My layout.

I have a 4.10 yp master server. I have various servers linked to it 
including other fbsd 5.3 servers. They do well. However, I have one 
inparticular server that simply will not pull one "specific" group name 

drwxr-xr-x   2 root    $FreeBSD    512 Apr 12 15:54 Usage Policy
drwxr-xr-x   7 root    wheel       512 Jun  9 04:45 archives

Instead of showing the actual group name, it displays $FreeBSD. Can anyone 
shed some light on possibly why this is occuring since the particular gid is 
viewable via ypcat group (itdept:*:32:root).
