Well, to be honest I'm not sure.  But the last time I had to change 
where my DNS names point
to it was 48 hours before I could get to my site by name.  My company 
always just kept serving the old names until our
statistics showed that no one was still using the old name.  I will look 
into it when I get time, I have wondered what they were
doing for a while now. :)
