Though RFC 2307 does not provide RFC 2252 conformant schema
descriptions, it does provide:

        ( nisSchema.1.14 NAME 'nisNetgroupTriple'
          DESC 'Netgroup triple'
          SYNTAX 'nisNetgroupTripleSyntax' )

        ( nisSchema.0.0 NAME 'nisNetgroupTripleSyntax'      
             DESC 'NIS netgroup triple' )

(where nisSchema is which clearly indicates that
the nisNetgroupTriple attribute has a syntax nisNetgroupTripleSyntax,
whose OID is

I see no prose or formal schema description in RFC 2307
that implies the syntax of this attribute type is IA5String
