There are probably more adminski ways of doing this, e.g. don't sent
print output, but I have the following in my /etc/cups/printers.conf
for testing and it works* fine.
Location Print queue devnull for testing.
JobSheets none none
* It "works" because I don't get any output. I get only "lp -ddevnull
request id is devnull-12 (1 file(s))."
