[Samba] I'm confused about W2K rpcclient "getdriver" response

I'm trying to query a W2K PDC for printer driver information in order to
install those same drivers on a SAMBA 2.2.7 server.  I executed an
enumdrivers ms-rpc call to get the list of drivers, but the getdriver
command fails for all but a couple of the drivers.  I've included a
representative instance below:

> cmd = getdriver "HP LaserJet 4050 Series PCL"
> Error opening printer handle for HP LaserJet 4050 Series PCL!

The question is, who's generating the error?  Is it the samba rpcclient
program or is it the W2K server?  Or can one even tell at all from the
response?  At this point I'm not sure where to start looking.
