It depends on how the pageTracker is coded

This is the definitive "pamphlet" on onclick

However the code you list is most likely for Google Analytics and is using a standard call to track an outbound click so it is nothing to worry about.

So is a dofollow link right?
Based upon that code most likely, though that doesn't take into account any other factors

Even seeing the page it would be impossible to say 100%, and even if you could perform some kind of test with weird anchor text that would be no guarantee that a link would continue to pass juice, or somehow might pass juice indirectly (e.g. Wikipedia scraper sites)

I personally do it like this. That is explicitly "return true" so there is no ambiguity.  
<a href="" onclick="pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/');return True;"><b>Domain</b</a>
