You can publish DNS-SD records and iOS will use them, but you can't make cupsd advertise them for you since we know CUPS + drivers != AirPrint.
(It often works but can fail in spectacular and frustrating ways, which is why we don't support AirPrint sharing from CUPS...)

The only thing we can’t figure out is how to enable AirPrint in CUPS so that all our iOS devices can see the printers being shared on our CUPS server. We have a lot of iOS devices and they would like to be able to print to all our printers. Any help in this process of how to enable this functionality in CUPS would be awesome!
