see printcap cache time in smb.conf

  This option specifies the number of seconds before the printing 
subsystem is again asked for the known printers.

            Setting this parameter to 0 disables any rescanning for new 
or removed printers after the initial startup.

            Default: printcap cache time = 750

            Example: printcap cache time = 600
