Does the NET SEND command allow access to PC?

I have noticed the last couple of times on the internet that someone keeps sending a "Messaging Service" pop up to me. I understand that these messages can be generated by the NET SEND command at the Command Prompt. Does this allow external users into my machine?

I run Windows XP SP1
