Yes it does.  It's work normal like other machine.  When you turn on the windows xp in parallels, it checks and installs software as needed.
Last time I wonder it works with SCCM or not and the answer is YES too.

Create another OU without any software GPO and put them in there.  Since they are in parallel machine, it also good to have a different OU for them.

All computers in the same OU will receive the same thing.  If you want it to be different, it should have a special setting on that machine but I dont know about it.  Hopefully some guys in here able to answe that question for you.
