[avahi] Avahi and CUPS?

Last week I was traveling, and avahi-browse worked perfectly
in finding printers.  Unfortunately, I could not persuade CUPS
of the existence of these printers.  Perhaps  I should be asking
on a CUPS list, but is there some trick to it?  (I thought other
Avahi users might know.)

The parts of my /etc/cups/cupsd.conf that I believe to be relevant are:

# Show shared printers on the local network.
Browsing On
BrowseOrder allow,deny
BrowseAllow from @LOCAL
BrowseProtocols dnssd cups
BrowseRemoteProtocols dnssd cups
BrowseLocalProtocols dnssd cups
