Sentence A is not necessarily incorrect, although it's a bit weird.
"There was one fact that they didn't know. He told them it yesterday."

Without the sentence before, one cannot tell because, when each is considered separately, both could be fine.

A. Should read: "He told them about it yesterday."

It depends. If he did tell them yesterday than neither is incorrect. If he didn't tell them yesterday than both are wrong
