Edit: /etc/lpd.hosts with names or IPs of machines to accept

Edit: /etc/lpd.perms

Add:

ACCEPT SERVICE=X REMOTEHOSTS=</etc/hosts.lpd

before:

REJECT SERVICE=X NOT SERVER

...and that should do it.

Note: I had to comment out the REJECT line to make it work, but I suspect that exports everything to the world which may not be what you want.
