Smb.conf / testparm issue..

I am setting up another printserver here... My issue is this..

I have the global variables for the printers set as follows..
   comment = All Printers
   browseable = on
   path = /var/spool/samba
   printable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   read only = yes
   create mask = 0700
and the Printing options telling samba to load and use the cups printers.

########## Printing ##########

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
   load printers = Yes

# lpr(ng) printing. You may wish to override the location of the
# printcap file
;   printing = bsd
;   printcap name = /etc/printcap

# CUPS printing.  See also the cupsaddsmb(8) manpage in the
# cupsys-client package.
   printing = cups
   printcap name = cups
   cups server = localhost
############ Misc ############
The problem is that when I run a testparm -s it shows as nothing is browseable.. as follows..

	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	create mask = 0700
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No
	browsable = No
Is this a bug I cannot find any information about this.. If not how can I set these printers browsable? I'm I missing a global variable somewhere?

   guest ok = yes
   read only = yes
   create mask = 0700

Eliminate browseable = on and create mask = 0700
Print shares last time I checked are not browseable.
