>From the troff.1 manpage:

     .hlm n
          Set  the maximum number of consecutive hyphenated lines
          to n.  If n is negative,  there  is  no  maximum.   The
          default value is -1.  This value is associated with the
          current environment.  Only lines output from  an  enviĀ­
          ronment  count towards the maximum associated with that
          environment.  Hyphens resulting from  \%  are  counted;
          explicit hyphens are not.

Is this what you were thinking of?
