[Samba] Change print job priority

The printer_admins group does not exist by default (unless you created it 
and assigned it the proper rights via net groupmap). CUPS sets the default 
administration group to be sys. If you change that group, you have to make 
sure that it exists via winbindd or /etc/password. I've found that you have 
to do a groupmap for Domain Admins to root. I forget the syntax of the 
command, but it's in the samba3 howto. Are you using the cups-samba drivers 
for your clients or are you using the vendor drivers on the client side? It 
may be an incompatibility issue.
