We have multiple domains in our organisation and when a user arrives at the login prompt they can see several domains.  I believe it is possible to set a default domain.  

For example, I have access to domains X, Y & Z.  I rarely logon to X or Y and so I would like the domain to default to Z as soon as my PC / Server boots up.  Can you provide the answer for Win XP, Win Server 2000 & Win Server 2003.  Thanks in advance...

Make a registry key to do it.

HKLM > software > microsoft > windows NT > current version > winlogon > defautdomainname

Key location is the same in all versions you listed.
