If you're talking about /etc/groups (see the group(5) man page), then
no -- group members can't be other groups.  You'll have to add each
user to all of the groups they should be a member of individually.

However the syntax of the example you give looks more like
/etc/mail/aliases (aliases(5)) -- in that case, yes, you can chain
mail aliases together in exactly this way.
