You could clone the pcAnywhere Settings - Windows policy, then set the target equal to the OUs that you want to have controlled.  On the Authentication tab, you can select the AD group you wish to have access to control the targeted systems/users.

Modify the original pcAnywhere Settings - Windows policy to exclude those groups if you wish as well.
