What are the advantages to publishing printers in Active Directory ?
Will computers then use DNS srv's to find the printer resources ?

Because you can query AD to locate the printers. you could also setup your
sites in the way thant users always get their local printers first when
searching in AD. This functionality is limited to how your subnet is divided
and your sites setup, but is works ok.
