That's probably going to be your best bet, it doesn't need a central server and maintains the contact list by itself.
At work we all use iChat with Bonjour (Macs). I know some on Windows avoid Bonjour like the plague but for a OSX/Windows network, Bonjour + Miranda looks pretty workable.
I'm sure it's an easy answer for Linux, whatever it would be.
So are you talking a Windows LAN here?

EZIM is a messenger for internal communication. It does not need a server to authenticate against to sign in. As long as you can get an IP address from the DHCP server (i.e. the network supports multicast), it will be able to find all other users within the same network segment and communicate with them. It is very handy to use on local area networks as it allows admins to provide a simple messenger service to the members without the need to add more servers, making life alot easier.
EZIM works on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and other operating systems which has Java Runtime Environment Version 6 or above installed.
It also contains a useful option which is to broadcast to all users as well as the standard private instant message.
