Over a week is a long time these days, but more than some ISPs just suck. Don't know of a standard. Somebody else probably will. When I get stuck with moving a site, I usually calendar a month as a nice round number that is more than enough. Then I burn down the old server, delete everything, and make a full clean break to the new server/host.

Dumb question... where would I find the authoritative record? The nameservers are on a VPS I am hosting, and the techs there tell me everything is in order with them... if I use dns lookup tools, I get the proper (new) IP address. But I still get a trickle of search and referral traffic to the old server.
