Printing problems

I am having a strange problem on my Samba server.
It is :
RedHat 6.0 (Intel)
Samba 2.05a
9 printers with HP JetDirect devices

Occasionally, 2 or 3 printers will just stop printing and report in 
windows print manager that they are paused.  To get the printers to 
print again, I must stop lpd manually remove the spool files from 
the print spool directories and the restart lpd.  Any ideas as to 
what could cause this problem or a remedy to fix it.
