Ant will simply use the JAXP parser the VM hands to it.

If you run JDK 1.4, you can remove Xerces completely and use the
Crimson that's part of the JDK (though I'd recommend to use the
endorsed standards mechanism to upgrade to Xerces in general).

If you run JDK 1.3, simply put the desired XML parser into your
CLASSPATH or ANT_HOME/lib and make sure that JAXP doesn't see Ant's
Xerces version.
