Is this terminal server?  Unless there's a script running somewhere, the only way for printers to be auto-created is to log in to a machine via RDP.

Okay, it's not a terminal server.  Are they connecting to this server via RDP?

If they're not connecting via RDP, are they accessing the "\\servername\printers and faxes" share?

How are they printing?  How are the printers on the printer server created?  How are the printers on the clients created?  Do you have a group policy set up to push out printers, and is it pushing them to your printer server?

One more thing, you say that every time they print it creates a printer.  Do you have any more information about that?  Is it a particular app?
