Good Afternoon,
   Here is the problem before me, I have a sun ultra 60 with two nic cards. hme0 is the primary and hme1 is the secondary.  My primary has a default domain my.domain.com.  upon bootup, server software sets up dns tables for communications via hme0 using the domain my.domain.com.  On our secondary nic card we have another domain of his.job.com.  The domain his.job.com has a NIS+ master that we are trying to use as our NIS+ master for authentication but the primary domain must be my.domain.com. what files need to be edited to allow the secondary NIS+ domain.

Ex. of hosts file:     nis_master  nis_master.his.job.com    sunserv51   sunserv51.his.job.com      secchris    secchris.my.domain.com

search my.domain.com

NIS/NIS+ domains have nothing to do with DNS domains.
And I'm not sure NIS/NIS+ understands the concept of more than one domain.

do you mean that your NIS domain has the same name as the DNS domain?
NIS master listens to broadcasts, after you have done a  ypinit -m  you can find the settings in /var/yp (usually), there is a directory for eaxh NIS-domain
