Just use Event viewer.

If the events are not logged make sure the right settings are in place namely:
"Audit account logon events"
in your security policy.

...you can select to audit: success, failure or both.
As per microsoft:
"Account logon events are generated when a domain user account is authenticated on a domain controller. The event is logged in the domain controller's security log."

Check it out and let me know how it goes.
