question about domainname

I'm kindda confused about domainname and /etc/defaultdomain.
If I type domainname, will this be added to /etc/defaultdomain or do I need to add manually on /etc/defaultdomain as well?...second question, if I type domainname it case sensitive?

Thank you.

DEFAULTDOMAIN(5)					     Linux Programmer's Manual						  DEFAULTDOMAIN(5)

defaultdomain - file which contains the NIS/YP domain name DESCRIPTION
/etc/defaultdomain is used by the boot scripts to set the NIS/YP domain name for a system as returned by the getdomainname(2) function. The file contains one line with the name of the domain. Unlike DNS hostnames and domain names, the NIS domain name is case-sensitive! The NIS domain name must not be the same as the DNS domain name, but for some services like NIS+ it should be the same. Even if the domain name is often called NIS/YP domain name, it is also used from other protocols, not only NIS/YP. FILES
