From your print server, inside printer management, select the both printers (do one at a time), right click and choose "properties". Go to the ports tab. check the box "enable printer pooling". Then on each printer, select the other port(s) you want to send the jobs to. I'll add a screenshot. In the screenshot, i'm setting this oki printer to potentially print to 2 different physical printers...say one is on 192.168.1.10 and another on 192.168.1.12
