man smbclient

       -M NetBIOS name
              This options allows you to send messages, using  the  "WinPopup"
              protocol,  to another computer. Once a connection is established
              you then type your message, pressing ^D (control-D) to end.

              If the receiving computer is  running  WinPopup  the  user  will
              receive the message and probably a beep. If they are not running
              WinPopup the message will be lost, and  no  error  message  will

              The  message  is  also automatically truncated if the message is
              over 1600 bytes, as this is the limit of the protocol.

Is this what you want?
