i think you can't add a group to another group using the net command.
You can do this with a simple vbs ( change the group names as you like):

On Error Resume Next

'get main objects/variables

Set ws = WScript.CreateObject ( "WScript.Shell" )
compname = ws.ExpandEnvironmentStrings ( "%COMPUTERNAME%" )
Set AdminGroup = GetObject ( "WinNT://" & compname & "/Administrators,group" )

'add domain groups to local admin group
AdminGroup.Add ( "WinNT://domain/Desktop_Admin,group" )
'End of the Script
