It uses a script to write the logon message.

This is useful as it shows you exactly where it is in GPMC

You can do this from the default domain policy.
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies/Security Options\
Interactive Logon: Message text for users attempting to log on.

Type your message in there and it will apply to all machines in the domain.

In the policy you want to edit, look for:
Computer Configuration
    Windows Settings
        Security Settings
            Local Policies
               Security Option
                 Interactive Logon

The particular ones you want is: "Message Text for users to logon", "Message Tile for Users attempting to lo on"
