PrintTask map layers limit

I cannot find any rhyme or reason to how many layers a map can have and still be printed using a printTask in the javascript api. Too many layers and when execute is called no arguments are passed in the query string (perhaps because at some point it exceeds the max length for a url?). Other times, with only a few layers added, the call is issued correctly, but the return is a timeout error. I cannot find any guidance in the documentation or on the web. Any ideas? Any way to post the args to circumvent the max url (if that is the problem)?
