This is defined by the "multiple-document-handling" attribute, just as for the rest of the Job Template attributes.

Conceptually we want to have a "pages-per-set" Document Template attribute, although I suspect that it would not see much use - "job-pages-per-set" is for things like PWG Raster Format where the Client is providing its own copies/sets to the Printer (multiple documents merged at the Client) rather than sending a high-level format (PDF) and asking the Printer to produce multiple sets/copies.  Printers sophisticated enough to support the Document object are probably going to support PDF...

(so maybe we can just reference the section on "multiple-document-handling" in RFC2911bis and say why there is no equivalent Document Template attribute?)
