You're going to have to describe the problem in more detail, because I can't see any issues there. A font-face definition like
@font-face {
font-family: "Garamond", serif;
...
}
Will cause the referenced font to be used for both font-family: "Garamond"; and font-family: serif; attributes. You shouldn't really be using fallbacks, though, they were put in because css on the web has to operate in a range of different user environments, whereas an epub's environment should be fully defined at the time it's coded. The only reason to use them is to accommodate the shortcomings in UserAgents like iBooks.
