You can do a "Net session" to find out who currently has a
session on a particular computer or server. Then you whould need
to query and merge quite a few computers' results. And, of course,
sessions may be dropped and re-established automatically.

One trick you can do from a logon script is set up the server comment
using a Net config server /SRVCOMMENT:"%USERNAME% %LOGONSERVER%"'
command. Then you can look at network neighborhood to see who is
logged on and which box authenticated them.

Authenticated users would need to be set up with permission to write
to the srvcomment registry key for all workstations.

Clear out the server comment with the logoff script and also the
shutdown and/or startup script -- in case the user turns off the
computer without logging off.

It isn't real time. But the latency should not be too bad.
