I'd bet you don't have a clean/complete install of 4.3.3 - I know because I had this same problem w/the same OS.  In my case, we had HACMP partially loaded on a system where we didn't need/want it installed.  Since the full set of HACMP software wasn't loaded, the system modules were only partially updated when we went to AIX 4.3.3 from 4.3.2, resulting in a weird blend of old & new libraries.  I found the conflict, deinstalled HACMP, put the 4.3.3 CDs back in, did a "smit update_all" and fed in
the requested CDs.  After rebooting (possibly before), sudo worked fine.

To verify your level, do the following checks:
lppchk -v		(If up to date, should return no output)
oslevel -l	(If up to date, should return no output)
