Well.. err... no... not really. I mean you could certainly make some kind of arbitrary data file available for PULL....

You see, in NIS you push data to NIS servers (a master NIS pushes its maps to known slaves) and clients can then PULL... but the interpretation of what is being pulled is up to the client to figure out. Now... IF your clients are NIS servers (e.g. slaves), then yes, you could make an argument that the data got pushed to your client.... regardless, that client might be a NIS client of itself and do a pull from itself :-)
