That is an anonymous bind, which is reasonable unless the printer also
supports Kerberos (doubtful).

Right, but you've probably got a default search base which the printer
isn't specifying. Are you sure you can't telnet/http to the printer and
set a search base? Does it enquire of your DNS server for SRV records?

Otherwise set defaultsearchbase in your slapd.conf to the base you want
the printer to search from.
