Well, what I see is that on old wheezy clients after a BrowsePoll
i get the printers queues exactly like on the server. On Jessie
clients after cups-browser work (and automatic BrowsePoll) I get the
queues that looks differently. Both BrowsePoll are getting
the queues from my jessie-tjener in productions since july 2015.

I suspect that older cups-client gets ppd from tjener and that
the newer Jessie cups-clients get the queues from the tjener BUT
the ppd directly from the printer, just because of the new
default ppd distribution policy of cups server. IIRC I read
some time ago, somewhere, about this policy change in cups/ppd
distribution. Maybe I'm totally wrong; but the different looking queues
are there.
