Maybe the tech staff here on the forum can give you more advice on this but,
If you have multiple domains pointing to 1 main site then you need to use 301 redirects.
You don't want to look like a link farm if you start forwarding all the sites to one main site, so use 301 redirects.
This is unlikely to happen with just 2 domains though.
Multiple domain names pointing to your main site will not help your rankings.
You may get some stray traffic though but I would rather concentrate on building links to the main site.
Also, forwarding a URL from within your domain account to another main URL is not a good practice as most forwards are 302 redirects and Google will see the URL's as duplicate content sites and ignore them completely.
Or, worse.. Google changes there algorithm down the track and penalizes you for having multiple domains pointing to one main site for the sole purpose of manipulating the search engines.
So all your other URL's pointing to the main page should be 301 redirects.
Basically, Your domain names need to be routed from the domain name registrar to a hosting account - from the hosting account you'll need to set a Permanent Redirect to your main site.

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
