Hello Sami,

The 4th ESXi host will pull licenses from the Overdraft pool (sh license usage Nexus1000).  N1k ships with 16 overdraft licenses which can be used indefinitely as long as a real license is installed.  Although not required, we suggest purchasing a license to cover the host in the overdraft pool.

Also note the licensing model on N1k has recently changed.
