Resource Record propagation maximum time

I would like to know in which maximum period of time new value of
Resource Record (RR) on the DNS server will be propagated via network to
For example client "D" requests for RR to cache server "C", cache server
"C" sends request for RR to cache "B" server and "B" cache server
requests for RR to server "A" (like in the picture bellow). On the
server "A" TTL parameter for RR is set to 5 minutes.
(DNS server "A") -> (cache server "B") -> (cache server "C") -> (client "D")
I think that the maximum period of time is 15 minutes because when "B"
is cache RR nearly 5 min server "C" may then send request to server B.
And when 5 minutes pass "D" will send request to server "C".
Can you tell me if I am right in this case?
