ifconfig alias problems

Responding to my ISP to change my IP block, I simply changed
the numbers in my config files and thought that there
would be no problems. However, for some reason, alias doesn't
want to work from rc.conf.
When I say 'doesn't work', I mean that I cannot ping my nameserver:
If I remove the alias from rc.conf, I can ping the server.
If I add the same alias from the command line, I can still ping
This does not make sense to me. Should rc.conf and ifconfig from
the command line be the same?
Here are the two commands:
rc.conf - doesn't work:
ifconfig_sis0_alias0="inet 220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.255.255"
ifconfig_sis0_alias0="inet 18.104.22.168 netmask 0xffffffff
(tried both - at different times)
ifconfig from command line - works:
ifconfig sis0 alias 22.214.171.124 netmask 0xffffffff
Any help is appreciated.
