[avahi] Network printer issues

at work we have a network printer that supports ZeroConf advertising
(and indeed it's advertising itself on the network) but I can't manage
to get it displayed when running avahi-browse -a.
So I dug up the printer configuration and noticed that it advertises
itself on the local network as printer_name._printer._tcp.local. Is
there a way for me to force Avahi to recognize this pattern and actually
display this printer when I run avahi-browse?
I have CUPS with DNSSD enabled but it doesn't display this printer and
I'm guessing it's because Avahi skips it. If this should be completely
transparent to Avahi let me know and also apologise for bothering you
with these small details.
