Does a domain redirect lose pagerank?

I have a friend that had a site built by someone else years ago with one domain name but he had a different domain name put on all his advertising (!). The second domain name wasn't even registered! It is now, and the site is being rebuilt with the new domain (that he insists on).

Does the first domain name being redirected to the new name, lose all its pagerank? (Its PR3) I'm guessing it does. Can any links to the original domain be redirected to?

This is for a local business so it doesn't probably matter that much unless pagerank plays a bigger role in local serps than I think it does.

Thanks.
