This is from the man page of ifconfig and there it is

alias   Establish an additional network address for this interface.
	     is sometimes useful when changing network numbers, and one
	     to accept packets addressed to the old interface.	If the
	     is on the same subnet as the first network address for this
	     interface, a non-conflicting netmask must be given.
	     0xffffffff is most appropriate.
