That play would be called a 'fielder's choice'.

A fielder's choice is a play where the defensive player that fields the ball attempts to put out a runner at another base instead of attempting to put out the batter at first base. No hit can be awarded on a fielder's choice but a sacrifice can be awarded if the batter had turned in the batter's box before the pitch in an obvious sign that they were going to bunt. An RBI can also be awarded if there was no error on the play.

It is only a sacrifice bunt if someone scores. If no one scores, then the player who bunted isn't credited with anything.
