[Samba] samba+cups failure - no printers in the share list

It seems my samba and cups won't communicate with each other. I've 
configured samba to load the printers from cups:
load printers = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups

         comment = All Printers
         path = /var/spool/samba
         printable = yes
         public = no
         read only = yes
         create mode = 0700
         valid users = @digiszfv
         printer admin = daniell

# lpstat -t
scheduler is running
no system default destination
device for hp_lj_p2015n: socket://
hp_lj_p2015n accepting requests since 2008. okt. 10., p?ek, 08.49.44 CEST
printer hp_lj_p2015n is idle.  enabled since 2008. okt. 10., p?ek, 
08.49.44 CEST

Despite all this, samba fails to advertise the printer:
# smbclient -U daniell -L FILESERVER
Enter daniell's password:
Domain=[DIGISZFV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.2.3]

         Sharename       Type      Comment
         ---------       ----      -------
         print$          Disk      Printer Drivers

         IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba (fileserver))
         daniell         Disk      Home Directories
Domain=[DIGISZFV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.2.3]

What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated.
