In the so-called 115 family members with chemical formulae of Ce$$T$$In$$_5$$ ($$T$$=Co, Rh, Ir) and $$An$$$$T$$Ga$$_5$$ ($$An$$=U, Np, Pu), our analysis of the Knight shift and spin-lattice relaxation rates suggests that larger XY-type anisotropy in the antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations in the normal states would favor $$d$$-wave superconductivity with higher $$T_c$$. In order to examine this working hypothesis, the anisotropy ratios of antiferromagnetic fluctuations are derived from our NMR results for the superconductor NpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ and antiferromagnet CePd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$, which are tetragonal compounds with a 115-related structure. CePd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ shows Ising-type anisotropy, which is the same anisotropy as in the ordered state. On the other hand, NpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ shows XY-type anisotropy just above $$T_c$$.
