Windows continues logon and logoff on Windows print-server.

On a Windows 10 Pro system, a printer is added that is connected to a Windows 2012 R2 server.
Both Windows system are member of the same Domain.
When, on the Windows 10 Pro system, the Service "(Print) Spooler" is Running, +/- every 30 sec a successfull
logon and logoff is performed from the Windows 10 Pro system to the Windows 2012 R2 server.
This logon and logoff are also performed as no print job is created and waiting.
For the logon a domain account is used.
When, on the Windows 10 Pro system, the Service "(Print) Spooler" is stopped, the logon and logoff actions are not performed.
Is it necessary that the print spooler service continuously performs logon and logoff actions to the Windows 2012 R2 server (polling).
If yes, is it necessary that the logon and logoff action are performed so frequently?

its not necessary but it is normal... does both the printer and Windows 10 pro system have static ip address in the network?

The print-server has a static IP-address.
The Windows 10 pro systems get a IP-address from a DHCP-server.
But this Windows 10 pro system is nearly always on and has therefor always the same IP-address.
