Should work fine, you just need to create the device node.

However, it is not necessarily a good idea to allow direct
access to a hardware device inside a jail.  A better way to
do that is to run lpd on the host system (or even within a
different, dedicated jail), and then connect to it from
within your samba jail.

Best regards
