Definitely read that MSDN article. Basically, you want the rendering to be done on the fastest possible machine so decide if your computer (the print server, I'm assuming) is more powerful than the computer that's sending you the print job. Also decide which computer you want to be out of commission for hours while it processes data -- yours or the other computer. I mean, if you're doing Illustrator on the other computer, it's probably very powerful, and I can't imagine it going any faster elsewhere.
