Yes, if you've added "bind interfaces only" or similar.

Which part you don't understand? That ls can't list
"/usr/share/cups/drives/*" when the subdir "drivers"
in "/usr/share/cups" isn't there at all? The command
that should have created it ("cupsaddsmb") failed.
It's possible that you have to create the directory
manually. Read all about it at Kurt Pfeiffle, ibidem.

What do you mean "cups Samba 2.2.8 / 3.0b3". There is
no such thing. cups must be something like 1.1.19 and
samba can be either 2.2.8 or 3.0b3. The problem I
referred to in a previous mail shouldn't affect 3.0b3
but will almost certainly be a nuisance in 2.2.8.
