SQL Server Express Won't Take <domain>\Domain Users Group as a Login

I just tried to add the <domain>\Domain Users group as a SQL Server Login.  (I took a crack at <domain>\Everyone as well.  No luck with that group either.)  The instance of SQL Server lives on the office domain controller.  I was able to accomplish what I needed by adding BUILTIN\Users as a SQL Server Login.  (BUILTIN\Users contains <doman>\Domain Users.)  But the question still remains, why didn't <domain>\Domain Users or <domain>\Everyone work?  Does the restriction stem from SQL Server Express?  The fact that instance of SQL Server resides on the domain controller?  Something else?
