There is no mystery. Antialias is possible _only_ with Type1 and
TrueType fonts. So, if you have antialias on, you can use only type1
and truetype fonts in apps what are using antialias. Xft (which
provides antialias) is completely different mechanism to give fonts to
the apps by X and is not related standard X/xfs methods.
