WorkAroundBrokenAAAA does not disable IPv6 lookups, it simply changes 
the behaviour  when receiving SERVFAIL during an IPv6 lookup.

 From the sendmail ops manual

   Use “WorkAroundBrokenAAAA” when faced with a broken nameserver that
   returns SERVFAIL (a temporary failure) on T_AAAA (IPv6) lookups 
during hostname
