Stuck glue records in the GTLD servers??

I'm seeing what looks like a stuck glue record in the GTLD servers and
I'm hoping I've just overlooked something simple. There are several
domains which list the following as their nameservers:
The zone for these (netdentalcare.com) was moved to a new ISP several
days ago. The new servers are properly resolving the names and the old
servers no longer are. Unfortunately, nobody can seem to resolve these
names unless they directly ask the new servers. Upon investigation, I
discovered the GTLD servers seem to be holding onto a stale glue
record for the zone's prior server:
ns.netdentalcare.com, type = A, class = IN
internet address = 18.104.22.168
nameserver = ns1.idaserver.com.
nameserver = ns2.idaserver.com.
internet address = 22.214.171.124
internet address = 126.96.36.199
I assumed this would have timed-out after two-days, but it hasn't.
Nobody is resolving the name to that address anymore. I checked the
old zone file to ensure it didn't have a long TTL and it didn't
If anybody has any insight into this issue it would be greatly
