Printing Multiple Copies

Has anyone come accross and solved an issue where only 1 copy of a doc prints after you use the -n flag and specify more then 1. My exact syntax is
lp -dprintername -n3 documentname
enq command does same thing.
Both commands show the 3 copies in the queue but only 1 ever prints
I am using AIX remote print queues and it happens on more then 1 printer.

       minfo - print the parameters of a MSDOS filesystem

Note of warning
       This  manpage  has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete.  See the
       end of this man page for details.

       The minfo command prints the parameters of a MS-DOS file system, such as number of sectors, heads and cylinders.  It also prints an mformat
       command  line  which can be used to create a similar MS-DOS file system on another media.  However, this doesn't work with 2m or XDF media,
       and with MS-DOS 1.0 file systems

       Mlabel supports the following option:

       v      Prints a hexdump of the boot sector, in addition to the other information

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only  approximative,  and  some
       items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process.  Indeed, these items have no appropriate repre-
       sentation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly  advise  you
       to use the original texinfo doc.  See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:

                     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,  run:

                     ./configure; make html

       A premade html can be found at `'

       *      To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:

                     ./configure; make info

       The  texinfo  doc looks most pretty when printed or as html.  Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult to read due to the
       quoting conventions used in info.
