Which end of the dart are we talking about? Only one end of the dart has to terminate for it to be a dart (rather than a seam). Usually the top end goes right into the arm-scye, it is the bottom end which either terminates at the pocket for a normal under-arm dart (no side-body) or carries onto the hem to become the side-body seam.
Your prevous post said it "shouldn't reach the armhole", which suggests that you're talking about the top end of the dart?
