I will be setting a new print server to migrate all of our printer from our old 2008 print cluster. Our old print cluster never seemed to be balanced correctly where all of the printers 80% were host mainly on one node. In 2012 how can I ensure that the load is split 50/50 or close to?

You don't. You can't cluster a print server like you do now. Microsoft's solution is to run a single VM in a cluster to give you high availability. They claim that this is simpler and more reliable.

OK, my Vmware are running in VMare but according to the link you posted and other that I have read even though you could setup an active/active cluster with groups assigned to different node it is preferred to setup a active/passive.
