Printing on a domain, not through the domain

We have 2 buildings and 1 server/domain. The second building has very slow printing and someone was able to figure out that if they print to //printer instead of //domain/printer that its significantly faster. I think the server would spool documents, or does the printer? What does this do for security and multiple people printing to the same printer on the domain in the second building? Or this ok?

When print jobs are spooled remotely, Your server processes the print job.
When print jobs are spooled locally, the local Windows computer processes the job.

Unlike remote spooling, local spooling does not use any network resources. Remote spooling requires that the local computer and the remote printer exchange many messages across the network. If a WAN has substantial latency, users will have a poor user experience if the print jobs are spooled remotely across the WAN.

If you do not have a server out on the LAN at Building 2 i would suggest printing from the local spooler as that does not consume any network resources. install the printer as a local printer and create a new port and select Standard TCP/IP Port then put in your port and install your printer drivers locally.
