You're right.

Then, in his case, the eth0 interface must have a dst rule that includes the
alias address, or no dst rule at all. Then, a rule can be added
conditionally opening the required ports. Something like this:

interface eth0 name dst "$eth0_address $eth0:1_address"
    server someservice accept with dst "$eth0:1_address"

I guess this should work.
