I'd use ifconfig.

ifconfig <interface_name> inet <virtual_ip_address> delete

For example:

ifconfig en0 inet 10.10.10.219 delete

I'm not sure my first comment would live through a reboot...

The chdev command is the one to use, but without the curly braces!!

chdev -l en0 -a delalias4=10.xx.xx.xx,255.xxx.xx.0

Please note that the above will remove an IPv4 alias. Use "delalias6" to remove an IPv6 alias.
