Why do Terminal Server printers disappear after logoff?

Our Windows 2003 Terminal Server shows no printers for users logging on.  They may add printers while logged on provided the printer they select is already configured on the server.  When they log off and log on again, the printers they have added have disappeared.  What do I need to change for their printer settings to be retained across sessions?

Do you have the terminal services client configured to connect printers from the local desktop session?  Do you have terminal services to not save the users profile at logoff?
