Y'all is a contraction for "you all," which is used for a specific group of 
people. (Y'all go get me some milk.)

"All y'all" is used only when referring to a general group of people. (All 
y'all Chevy-heads are morons.)

I should know.  I used to live in Mesquite (you Dallas people will 
understand :).
