You're missing the VALUENAME part of the policy... without that it doesn't know what to alter.

You already have the KeyName:

KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Is WinLogon the value you're trying to alter? Doesn't exist on my PC so I couldn't check.

Okay, then change it to:

CLASS MACHINE
     CATEGORY "DOMAIN Settings"
          CATEGORY "DOMAIN Server Setting"
               POLICY "Default Domain"
               KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"
               PART "Default Domain Name" EDITTEXT
                    VALUENAME "DefaultDomainName"
                    DEFAULT "DOMAINNAMEHERE"
               END POLICY
     END CATEGORY
END CATEGORY

You must always specify the ValueName you want to alter. The name you give to Part is just a name, nothing but aesthetics.
