If it's just one or two fronds, it really shouldn't be anything major to worry about. The plant could be going into dormancy, be potbound or may be in need of some fertilizer at half strength. I would suggest keeping an eye on the plant, however, to see that it doesn't spread to any other fronds. You can also remove the yellowing fronds from the plant. Here is more information:
