For systems running SYSV or BSD printing do: testparm -sv | grep lp
This will return the actual commands smbd uses to find print queues.
On cups systems, smbd directly queries the cupsd using a built-in interface.
The only time it is necessary to specify the printer configuration in detail
is where you want to restrict certain printers from use.
