Oh so ancient!  It should be OK, but you might hit issues with more
recent frontends than backends if the frontends advertise capabilities
that the backends don't support.  We saw this just the other day with
a site with 2.4.4 frontends and 2.3.16 backends, where the frontends
advertised the ESEARCH capability and iPhones got sad when their
perfectly reasonable searches were rejected!
