You basically have two choices.

1. Add the new domain to the default policy. This will give all users an email address on the new domain, but will not make it the default domain.

2. Add the new domain as an additional policy. Then depending on what you do with the new policy you can either - give all users an email address on the the domain, give specific users and email address on the domain etc.

Another option, depending on where you purchased the domain from would be to use some kind of email address rewrite, which is what I do with UK clients who have both the .com and the variant.
On the domain name registrar's control panel I can set it so that emails sent to are sent to @ (ie the same part at the original domain). I don't need to change Exchange at all.
That would only be suitable if you were not going to use the new domain on replies.

Any of the options will work for you. Even the address rewrite option - they don't have to be different TLDs, so two .com domains will be fine.

It all depends how much you are going to use the new domain - if you aren't going to use it much at all, then perhaps one of the set it and forget it type options might be a good choice.
