how to fix a DNS oops?


I was making changes to my zone file and I accidently put the wrong ip in...

looks something like this...

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA root.localhost. (
2003092501 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
7200 ; retry
604800 ; expire
86400 ; ttl

@ IN MX 10
@ IN MX 10

www IN A
pop IN A
smtp IN A

jimmeh IN A
ixion IN A
webmail IN A
cs IN A
chat IN A
uploads IN A
markyboy IN A
stats IN A
war3 IN A
colosseum IN A
@ IN A

I am using RedHat 7.3 and I'm not even entirely sure I have this zone setup right... I made the error on "colosseum" and put the wrong IP in. I went ahead and restarted the /etc/init.d/named and went on my merry way and then discovered, oops it doesn't ping... I tried correcting the error, and changed the serial, restarted named... hmmm? it still pings to the wrong ip that i goofed on... i changed the serial again, nothing...

i'm assuming the time to live is still alive... how do i kill it? or do i have to wait? lol .. i'm just curious if this is fixable.

please feel free to correct my zone file if i set it up wrong lol... i only have the one machine doing my DNS (and web crap)... and can i use the ip in my other machines such as a winxp box network configuration in the DNS area?

thanks! ;D
