Printer pooling not doing load balancing

Hello everybody,

we have a number of printers on our Windows 2003 R2 SP2 print server that are grouped together to form a pool. They are all pools of two printers.
What we would expect is that the load is evenly distributed among the two printers of the pool, but this does not happen. From print statistics, we see that the number of pages printed is definitely higher for one printer of the pool and not for the other. And this happens with all the pools.
How can we solve this problem?
Thank you in advance
