I have a host that is using NIS for user authentication. Both user A and B are valid user. But how to only allow user A login the host via ssh?

SSH is configured via the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

See the above documentation as regarding the parameters AllowGroups, AllowUsers, DenyGroups, DenyUsers.
