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.

Just doing the command domainname
will not place it into /etc/defaultdomain (on Solaris at least).
