root nameserver has stale entry

I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask this or not, if not
hopefully someone can direct me to where I can find an answer.  I run
primary and secondary nameservers that host around 500 domains.  The
servers each have 2 different public IPs on different interfaces.  They
have two because I am looking to switch to new IP addresses for these
servers.  I made the A record change in my zone last Thursday.  Now when
I do a dig locally it resolves to the new address that I changed the
records to, but if I do a +trace the root nameservers reply with the old
IPs.  My guess is that since these are registered nameservers that the
root servers have an entry for them.  My question is does anyone know
how I get the root namservers to update to the new IP address?
