Wired/Wireless Printing Via DNS

Hello! I'm attempting to create iPrint objects that take advantage of both wired and wireless NIC's for new printers that feature both. To do this I've created DNS entries that contain both IP's and used that entry in the iPrint object. In testing this worked fine, but rather suddenly it seems none of them are working now. They still respond to pings and work fine outside of iPrint. Is there a better way to do this or should I just revert to disabling one of the NIC's and forcing the printer to be wired or wireless?

i could be that when resolving the dns name, sometimes the wireless ip
is sent and other time is the wired. Taken a lan trace at the
server/appliance using tcpdump may show more info while duplicating the
printing failure. Maybe when using one of the ip, routing is wrong,
firewalls, switches in the path etc....
you may be better creating two different iprint object, one for
wireless, one for wired.
