You can certainly have multiple queues, either classes pointing at the same printers or printers pointing to the same devices.  You might have to do some juggling for Pykota to work in this setup, but CUPS won't have a problem with it.

So I'm asking, if it is possible, to hold two or more queues, so that all printers can printing at the same time.
