Distributions are tracked on a calendar year basis, regardless of the tax year of the reporting entity.

Generally speaking, any IRA/401K that becomes part of the probate estate is not eligible for RMD distributions, but must be fully distributed within 5 years. It doesn't matter how you time the distributions as long as they are completed timely.
