Does windows print server store copies of documents that are printed?  If not, does it store any information at all about documents that are printed?

Not as far as I know. Once the documents have printed, the cache is empty. It the printer has enough memory, the Windows cache empties. If the printer then screws up and cannot recover its own cached memory, the document must be reprinted.

In all my experience, when a document is printed, the cache empties. This goes back to XP and Server 2003. I do not have a definitive source, but the print cache never appears to have content in it.
