Not sure what is going on there.  I don't know how dyndns,org does it, but I
run an Apache server under Win 2K using Dns2Go as my Dynamic DNS provider.
They way it set itself up when installed resulted in very fast response to IP
address changes.  For example, shortly after I got it set up, I intentionally
killed my DSL connection, the reconnected it.  From another computer (on a
dialup, not the same DSL), I verified that the page was working before killing
the DSL connection.  After killing the DSL, it took about a minute or so
before Dns2Go detected the off line state and was redirecting requests to the
web site to the alternate page (on an Earthlink server).  After reconnecting
the DSL (which gets a different IP address), it again took only a minute or
so, before requests to the Apache server were going to the new address.
