I never seen an out of the box tool for this ; however you can use many log file watchers such as splunk to record lock out events . Splunk is decent and can be used for other types of reports and log file monitoring.

There are queries that you can write to get the list of currently locked out users ; but it it doesn't give you the list for the past 24 hours.

If a powershell script suits you (i.e. powershell being installed on your 2003 server), I will provide one in 10 hours (when back in the office).

If you are interested in a powershell solution instead of eventcomb, take http://www.travisrunyard.com/2012/11/08/active-directory-user-account-lockout-event-notification/ - needs only small modifications, in this form it will genereate mails promptly whenever an account locks.

You can also try AD Auditor  as a freeware to view the report of locked out users in the last 24 hrs

Also you can schedule this report so that the report will automatically send to you each day at the defined time and mail id.
