ejabberd is probably a bit extreme for this unless you want to add more
services, but I think simple broadcasts could actually be done via the
Bonjour variant of XMPP (http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0174.html).
I've no idea if a command-line client exists for that, though, and my
attempts to send a basic message using netcat and Empathy failed badly.
Maybe I need to publish more services with Avahi?

Winpopup might work, but is generally disabled on the Windows side these
days (since SP2?) thanks to Messenger service spam.
