high availability

We have installed CUPS on 2 servers. The CUPS clients are configured to work with these 2 CUPS servers If we define a printer on both systems in exactly the same way, the " implicit classes" function of cups will recognize this as one printer. So we reached our goal of High availability.

To easy the administration effort, i was thinking to use rsync to sync the contents of the printers.conf file on both machines. Has anyone done this?
As i need to restart cups to make the changes visible, i was wondering what effect this will have on printjobs that are currently being printed. Or is there an other way of having cups reread the printers.conf file?
