The NET SEND command should work. You can schedule it as a task on a machine or server to do it.

I tried the net send. My Terminal Server users get a message for each user who is logged in to the server (or so it seems). They click ok, and it comes back up. They have to click ok 30 or 40 times before the message will go away.

Try the msg command (available in XP/W2k3; ).
You'll need a list with all the machines in your domain and the following command:

for /f %a in (MachineList.txt) do msg * /server:%a "This is a broadcast message to all users."

If you want to use this in a batch file, use %%a instead of %a.
