No, that would cause all pending remote print jobs to be canceled.

What's probably happening is that the local CUPS is creating two
remote queues - one previously associated with the host name and one
associated with the IP.

Some possible fixes for you:

     1. Make sure that ypbind is running before cups is started.
     2. Use DNS for host names instead of NIS.
