I did test it, and it appeared to be OK. The main issue for me is, the TTL 
is 3h and 48 hrs later some hardware is still caching the old IP address.

Sorry...the domain is my-gym.com

I guess I deserve to be flamed, but I don't completely understand the 
significance of what you're saying.

I did not change the authoritative NS for the domain, just the A record, and 
I thought the glue records referred to NS declaration in the domain file 
itself? In which case they're there?

Please help me understand where I'm going wrong here. I thought I had been 
following the correct protocol per my reading of DNS & BIND.

TIA, Andrew
