For my EPSON EPL-5800 I can install two printer drivers: one that  
converts every input to the printer queue to some ESC language (pure  
<4 letter word>!) and one that uses the PPD file. This one works.

If your Xerox Phaser 3450 DN has a PPD file, then install it in / 
Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/*.lproj/ (the PPD files have  
internal texts in different languages which appear in the printing  
GUIs to set this or lookup that), if it did not happen upon  
installing the Xerox printer software on your Mac. By choosing  
"Andere…" from "Bitte Druckertreiber oder Druckermodell wählen" a  
form opens that allows you to navigate through the file system. This  
is the last resort if you don't see XEROX listed under this button,  
i.e. the installation of its printer software failed/was lost.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
