So I have an typo in my post.
I did look in /var/log/lpd-errs and it's  empty.

Any help as what to do to figure this out?

That would be /var/log/lpd-errs.

That's a pretty big conclusion from a small test.  Like the old "my
program doesn't work, so it must be a bug in the compiler" jump.
are just looking for results in the wrong place.  It's also possible
that you have syslog set to not log that type of error.
