I believe that NIS support -- whether via ypldap(8) or the original
ypserv(8) will only provide support for:


on FreeBSD.  (All of those, except for hosts support the '+' entry in
the local files to indicate referral to NIS.)

Be aware that the NIS code is not that widely used nowadays and could
well be buggy.  Most people implementing LDAP as a password database
would instead install net/nss-pam-ldapd (or  net/nss-pam-ldapd-sasl)
which allows making LDAP lookups directly from /etc/nsswitch.conf

If you want LDAP support for /etc/mail/aliases that's best achieved by
installing a MTA from ports with LDAP support compiled in.  The ports
version of sendmail can be LDAP enabled, but I very much prefer postfix
for doing this -- it has a particularly nice and flexible configuration
syntax for looking up just about anything from LDAP or various other
