You are getting exactly what you ask for (and deserve? :-) )

The font name is "Arial" but the "PostScript name" inside the font
(i.e., what displays inside of Acrobat or Reader) of that particular
font is "ArialMT" where the "MT" is for Monotype, the font foundry
from which it originates.

Thus, what you are getting out of Distiller is perfectly kosher
(assuming you really like Arial)!
