I need to allow only this bot in robots.txt.

AOL hasn't powered its own search engine for over a decade it now uses Google search.
In fact, in June of 1999 Netscape Search was updated and AOL/Netscape search began to be powered by Google bringing their search volume to approximately 3 million per day; huge for the time.
