The default setting is to enable local printer redirection.

If the user connects to TS her/his local printers (printers installed on the
local desktop computer) will be redirected and inside the session
represented like "PrinterName (from ClientName) in session #". Printing to
this printer will redirect the printout to local printer on the client side
After the client logs off there is no reason to keep those printers - the
session is gone and the redirected printers are deleted.
Next time when the user connects to the TS server those printers will be
redirected with the same preferences set for this printer during the last
session. The session number i the redirected printer name may be different
though.
