Thanks for the feedback, Giorgio. 

As far as I know the printer detection on the network changed from cups 
to mdns. So now the package libnss-mdns must be installed to assure the 
detection. I've set up a Debian Edu jessie based VirtualBox environment. 
After installing libnss-mdns on a workstation applications were aware of 
the printers configured on tjener. The printers were added automaticly 
to /etc/cups/printers.conf on the workstation.
