bbdb-define-all-aliases-field isn't used in vm, so it must be some other 
package or your configuration files. Do you use a bbdb addition like 
bbdb-vcard? A number of bbdb function names have changed between bbdb2 and 
bbdb3. The new name for bbdb-define-all-aliases-field is bbdb-mail-alias-field. 
Here is the (complete?) list of changes:

bbdb-record-putprop => bbdb-record-setfield
bbdb-record-Notes => bbdb-record-xfields
bbdb-record-set-Notes => bbdb-record-set-xfields
bbdb-record-company => bbdb-record-organization
bbdb-get-field => bbdb-record-field
bbdb-record-notes => bbdb-record-xfields
bbdb-get-field => bbdb-record-field
bbdb-record-getprop => bbdb-record-xfield
bbdb-define-all-aliases-field => bbdb-mail-alias-field
bbdb-record-raw-notes => bbdb-record-xfields
bbdb-phone-location => bbdb-phone-label
bbdb-address-location => bbdb-address-label
bbdb-address-zip => bbdb-address-postcode

There are also some cases where a bbdb field has become a list (instead
of a comma separated field) and preferably bbdb-record-field record
field (e.g. address) should be used instead of bbdb-record-<field> and
bbdb-record-set-<field> => bbdb-record-set-field
