As far as I know, the only MailScanner SPF checks are in SpamAssassin.
To disable a SpamAssassin rule, put

score RULE_NAME 0

in /etc/MailScanner/spamassassin.conf (that's the normal path to this
file - where it is in cPanel may be different).  RULE_NAME is whatever
is hitting and raising the score. Probably things like SPF_FAIL,

There may also be files in /etc/spamassassin. Normally
/etc/spamassassin/ is a symlink to
/etc/MailScanner/spamassassin.conf, but there is also a and you
could put your scores there or even in your own .cf file in that
directory. Those .cf files are loaded in alphanumeric order and later
settings override earlier ones.
