The above won't work at all, as you've left out the "=" for the variable
assignment - rc.conf is written in sh(1) syntax. But even if you add that
(as you probably did in your file), you will just overwrite the variable.
I don't think what you want to do is possible in rc.conf (unfortunately!).
Maybe have a look at ifaliases(5).
