What to do if I lose the lockbox definition?
Can I recreate a lockbox using only the public keys from the wallets?

I understand that the lockbox definition can be public but I cannot find any information about the necessity of backups.

Put on other words, do I need to backup the lockbox definition?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.
