BIND DNS update

I have updated the DNS servers to a domain trough the control panel for the domain. When I use my local DNS server, and type host -t ns it shows the old DNS servers, because it's cached. When I try f.ex host -t ns it gives me the correct because it hasn't been cached there.

I am wondering when my local BIND will update and show the correct ones?

in zone file. there is option for cache time.

@ 1D IN MX 10 mail

1D = 1 day, this desribes how long this record will live in other nameserver's cache.

It was updated today. I think the nameserver refreshes it's cache each hour or something. It's a option for it in Webmin.
