From your subject line, I would assume you are hosting a DNS server at your home office.

You just need to follow the same steps you did to create your abc domain. Add def.com in named.conf, define its zone files in /var/named and you are all set.

you will need to configure your mail server to accept mails for both your domain names.

the files you would need to look at are

/etc/mail/access and
/etc/mail/local-host-names

If you dns is able to resolve mailserver.def.com, it is not really necessary to put an entry in /etc/hosts.
