Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is your profession? And your company is already running it's own name servers? Why aren't you asking these questiosn of your peers / superiors? Have you not documented any of your own IT systems??
I think you need to get to grips with the basics of Linux first. You do not appear to be at all ready to perform these tasks. Again, you say this is your work place? Is there really no one else you can ask who knows anything about Linux?
acid is right, but also you need to know where exactly the db file is, otherwise you will never do this right. Until now you showed only empty file or directories, which kind of says you don't know where they are (the configuration files) and maybe you should ask someone from you company to tell you. After that adding the MX entry is not really that hard.
