[Samba] Annonymous access guest ok = yes

I am trying to get some printer shares to be anonymous access.
I have set guest ok = yes
but from the log file, it looks like if a username is passed, and a failed
lookup, it wont just default to annonymous.  Is there another setting or
configuration that I need to add to get it to work?

# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
