DNS forced cache refresh


I recently registered a nameserver for my domain name with my registrar. I know that it takes about 2 days or even more for the information to be propogated. I was looking if such a command existed which could query the actual nameserver, and that actual nameserver read the file instead of its cache to answer the query. Can dig be used to perform such an operation. I skimmed over the man page of dig but couldn't find such information. There is only an option to query a specific nameserver by specifying the "@" sign followed by the nameserver to query, but that doesn't return the new changed entry.

#dig www.yahoo.com

or

#dig -x X.X.X.X (IP)

well i certainly know how to use the dig command, the way you have specified! what i want to know is whether there exists a way to cause the actual DNS server to reply by reading the updated configuration file.
