This looks like a feature of your lp system rather than a samba
thing. If samba was to submit the job to the lp system twice then
one would expect it to print twice.
Does linux printing have mode/interface scripts? If so check to
see if the printer to which you are printing from samba has been
set up to process the output in some way and then:
re-submit the job with different options or,
submit the job to a different queue.
