bpi54 has two printers attached by USB. It also hosts four print queues that work
from bpi54 and bpi51. You have a printing system that should continue working
until trixie comes along. Then it will fall apart.

So why this descent into GNU Name Service Switch (NSS) functionality when you are
satisfied with the printing situation?

Greg Wooledge's nsswitch.conf line is what would be expected on a machine having
avahi-demon.service. You do not have avahi-daemon and libnss-mdns installed. That
is fine. A descision has been made to create queues with vendor drivers on bpi54

Your nsswitch.conf line implies libnss-mymacines and libnss-mymhostname are used.
They have man pages to help you decide what parts they play on bpi54.

What do you have on bpi51?
