That variable controls the selection of underlying text renderer
rather than anti-aliasing directly.  I've once suggested its renaming
at emacs-devel, but there was no response.


To control anti-aliasing, some description in Emacs Info (`Mac Font
Specs' node) might be useful.

     Mac OS X 10.2 or later can use two types of text renderings: Quartz
  2D (aka Core Graphics) and QuickDraw.  By default, Emacs uses the
  former on such versions.  It can be changed by setting
  `mac-allow-anti-aliasing' to `t' (Quartz 2D) or `nil' (QuickDraw).
  Both ATSUI and QuickDraw Text drawings are affected by the value of
  this variable.

     Appearance of text in small sizes will also be affected by the "Turn
  off text smoothing for font sizes N and smaller" setting in the General
  pane (Mac OS X 10.1 or 10.2) or in the Appearance pane (10.3 or later)
  of the System Preferences.  This threshold can alternatively be set
  just for Emacs (i.e., not as the system-wide setting) using the
  `defaults' command:

       defaults write org.gnu.Emacs AppleAntiAliasingThreshold N

Also, if you prefer overstriking bold by Emacs to synthetic bold by
ATSUI for Monaco for example, it can be specified as:

  (add-to-list 'face-ignored-fonts "\\`-[^-]*-monaco-bold-")
