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.
