I haven't tried it, but from access(5):
NOTE 3: use the cidr lookup table type to specify network/netmask
patterns. See cidr_table(5) for details.
And from cidr_table(5):
The general form of a Postfix CIDR table is:
When a search string matches the specified network block,
use the corresponding result value.
Specify 0.0.0.0/0 to match every IPv4 address, and ::/0 to
match every IPv6 address.
