What is AIS plumbing and what does it mean when it makes the smog check fail?

I am thinking of buying a 528i 1999 with sport package and I noticed in the carfax report that it failed the smog test back in 2006 (64000 miles) and had repairs on the AIS plumbing. Is that normal wear and tear or is it indicative of a bigger problem?

AIS? I would assume their talking about the secondary air pump, but that doesn't match up with that acronym.
