Consider the following

hello.tsk: hello.h
hello.tsk: hello.o; $(CC) -o $@ $<

Here, hello.tsk is the default goal and it depends on hello.o and hello.h.
Multiple rules can provide different prerequisites to the same target.
The above is equivalent to
hello.tsk: hello.o hello.h
You can see that this example mimics your .silent example.
Your makefile provided a prerequisite to .SILENT. Make then knows that
.SILENT has a prerequisite.
