Is this with 'init-/bin/systemd' or is systemd-sysv installed. Not that
it particularly matters, it's just part of the picture.

If the errors are gone the bug is fixed.

printer discovery over a network but the 'works with sysvinit but not
with systemd' wouldn't be part of the solution.

   lpstat -a

shows the print queues on a cups 1.7 server.
