[Samba] question about printer shares

Please excuse my made up fictitious names and IPs.
I have a printer that was setup such as xxxt1
but in the hosts file on the HP system (11.0 HP-UX)
the printer name is xxxlbl1
I setup the samba printer share with the name xxxlbl1
My question is will the samba printer share work with the name xxxt1 if the
name is aliases in the /etc/hosts file such as
22.214.171.124 xxxlbl1 xxxt1
Or how does the samba mechanism work when it gets a name
from the host server? Is the hosts file the controlling factor?
Thanks for your help.
