As to refresh, thats what the TTL is for (time to live). It's in seconds so simply divide the number by 3600 to see how long (hours) before dns is supposed to propogate.
Dear Parsec, it propagates on server itself, since i get:
s1:~# host -a m.domain.tld
Trying "m.domain.tld"
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 4336
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 7, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;m.domain.tld. IN ANY

m.domain.tld. 21600 IN CNAME domain.tld.
domain.tld. 21600 IN SOA ns1.domain.tld.mail.gma 2013021603 28800 7200 604800 86400
domain.tld. 21600 IN A
domain.tld. 21600 IN MX 10 mail.domain.tld.
domain.tld. 21600 IN NS
domain.tld. 21600 IN NS
domain.tld. 21600 IN TXT "\"v=spf a mx ptr ip4: -all\""

Received 253 bytes from in 40 ms
So all i need to do is wait and see? If not, i will write results in few days.
Thank you for efforts, friend!
