[Samba] Printer pooling with samba / CUPS pool 2 printers with one logical "queue"

I have one printer queue that needs to be "pooled" as
in , I have 2 physical hp 4100 series printers that
need to share the load. 

I have read the docs and realize this can't be done in
Samba, but I am pretty sure it can be done in CUPS.
How do I do it though. CUPS documentation seems pretty
sketchy as to how I need to go about doing this. Can
anyone point me in the right direction, I am pretty
sure this should be a simple fix. 

example for one printer the printer port is as
DeviceURI socket://

would I simply add another deviceURI socket statement?

Thanks for your help everyone
