This is careless, should anything go wrong. It would have been better
to wait a bit to see if everything was OK.

You apparently did not indicate the domain name so it is quite
difficult to debug. Shot in the dark: the domain name is also known by
the registry of the TLD, they publish glue and you did not tell your
registrar to change that glue, and so the TLD name servers continue to
"pollute" the DNS?
