Arnold licensing is independent of the host application license. 
For example, you can use an Arnold 2020 license in Maya 2019, 2020, and 2022. And if you use an older MtoA, you could use the Arnold 2020 license in Maya 2018.

Check the Release Notes to see what host application versions are supported.

Arnold and Arnold Plug-in Versions

The Date column gives you the version number you need to see in your license if you want to use a specific Arnold or Arnold plugin. For example, if you want to use Arnold 4.2.10.0 (version number 20150930), the version number in your license file has to be at least 20150930.

MtoA 2.0 had already been released, but we didn't want the Maya 2017 Update 4 install to force everyone to update to Arnold 5, because that would have caused a lot of problems. We wanted users to be able to choose: stay with Arnold 4 for now, or update to Arnold 5 when ready.
