First of all, surely you mean you configured more than just an SOA record
-- a zone must at least have NS records in addition to the SOA record.

Secondly, unless you're talking about master/slave interactions,
DNS information does not "propagate [...] out" (and, even in the case of
master/slave, the standards-defined method is a "pull" by the slave from
the master, not a "push" from the master to the slave).

Thirdly, how is the domain delegated from its parent domain?
