Win2K Adv Svr Load Balancing [Printing]

Is it possible to configure print services to failover to a second identical Win2K Adv Svr using Network Load Balancing? NLB is configured correctly and I can connect client machines to the shared printer on the 'Virtual Server', but when I disconnect the primary server to test for failover, print jobs fail, indicating that the second server isn't picking up where the other left off. As I don't have shared disks I can't use clustering apparently. Any advice would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks.
