The output contacts go into the priority thermostat and the transformer hot and gnd connected to the 24V AC and common on the board (B and F from Figure 5, left)Figure 2:

Here's the boiler and wires that go to a switch that eventually goes into the isolation switch on the relay board "E" Figure 5 below
I was thinking about replacing it with a Taco 6 zone with a priority https://www.supplyhouse.com/Taco-SR506-EXP-4-6-Zone-Switching-Relay-w-Priority
. It doesn't have that 24VAC/Common terminal. Each thermostat has common. Figure 4:

Trying to match existing (left) to potential new board (right)Figure 6:
The Boiler schematic where I assume would be E from figure 5
The only connections I can't match on the new board would be the E (isolation switch on the old board) and F (24v transformer from indirect water tank). The closet thing to F I find on the manual for the water tank https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.supplyhouse.com/product_files/AL50SL-Install.pdf
would be this:Figure 7:
installation, operating and service instructions for AllianceSL Indirect - Fired Water Heater, Switching relay Wiring Diagrams, for Switching Relay R8845U or SR 501
Where I would jump the HOT for the 24V transformer to the "R" of the zone. And the common would be connected to C. Is that right?
Or forget about trying to install the Taco and replace it with another Argo for a 1to1 replacement.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this. And any advice you could give me would be great.
Why was I thinking about replace it with the Taco? Well that taco unit has commons, so it should work flawless with smart thermostats. Unlike the Argo
Your new Argo ARM control should work well with all standard and most programmable setback thermostats. In the event the programmable thermostat you are using causes the control board relays to chatter, you will require an external 24V power supply (transformer) and an Argo IR882 Isolation Relay.
