DNS partial propagation issue


Hello, I registered a domain on Route53, then changed the NS records for another provider, and changed it back to AWS NS records. This happened a couple of times due to various reasons. Now I have decided to make AWS NS records as permanent. So I made the relevant changes - NS records in public hosted zone match with Glue records. However, the DNSChecker service shows that only half of the DNS servers are able to identify the correct DNS configuration (for all types of DNS records), and half of them do not recognize at all. There are couple of them which still reflect the other DNS provider records. I have waited for almost 48 hours, but still not able to fix this issue. If I make any changes to any DNS record, the half of DNS servers which actually reflect changes also reflect the new changes within couple of minutes.

What could be missing? Please help as this has left my email service to work intermittently. Thank you.

What's the TTL (time-to-live) for the NS records for the domain when it was on the other registrar? It's usually 172800 seconds (48 hours) but it may be more.

Also, if the domain is using DNSSEC then try disabling it and see if that improves things. After you get the propagation issue straightened out you can re-enable it later.
