An OMF can have separate or embedded media that will be either wav or aif. So your sound guy probably wanted an OMF with wav formatted media. If you can export the OMF with media non embedded the 2 gig limit doesn't apply. I guess the Duck only allows for embedded OMF but check preferences as you might be able to do the whole project in one if it can create the media in a separate folder.

The best thing is to get your sound post people to be very specific. AAF import requires licensing and I for one do not take AAF over OMF as there is no particular advantage apart from file size limitations for me. It is easy to split a project up and maintain correct master timeline placement but beware when deleting that you don't ripple edit as this will move the audio up the timeline and make it a total pain to import.
