Please check out OSXvnc at http://www.redstonesoftware.com/OSXvnc
In answer to your questions...
> (1) does the VNC Server run on Mac OS X?
> (2) can a WinXP VNC client connect securely to a Mac OS X VNC server?
> (3) will it authenticate against Active Directory?
1 - The RealVNC server directly does not work on Mac OS X, although it
can be slightly modified to access ONLY X-11 apps, but for native Macs
you will need OSXvnc.
2 - Securely requires that you tunnel the VNC connection through SSH
(which is easily enabled on OS X by just clicking a checkbox).
Connections between any OS/Flavor of VNC and OSXvnc is supported.
3 - OSXvnc does not support any authentication beyond the VNC password
