Two of pve server are having oom-kill kvm stoping issue. But there are other noted even under heavier load but do not have oom-kill issue. Is there a way to completly disable it? I can handle slow vms but getting stopped kvm is a big problem.

But heavier loaded nodes is not having this issue. Nearly same node settings / hardware.
What does that even mean? So they are "heaver loaded" and "nearly the same", but not running out of memory as these are. Therefore something is different on the ones that run out of memory.

You must find out why these are running out of memory and mitigate that. Perhaps you could start by looking at how your memory is allocated, the size of ZFS cache if any, the usual stuff. Perhaps comparing memory usage (as opposed to "load") between servers would give some insight.
