stats.allstarlink.org.  25932082 IN     A

Just for information purposes, that huge number before "IN" is the problem.  That represents the Time-To-Live (in seconds), which is how long a recursive DNS server is allowed to cache the entry before checking back in with the authoritative server to see if it's updated.  With that long of a TTL, it would stay for months.   You mentioned in a later email your old DNS server was - does that represent your router?  If so, either your router, or something upstream of you, is doing some very bad stuff like overriding the DNS TTL.  Changing DNS server will work, probably until the next time you reboot the machine, as DHCP will then again grab the IP for DNS.
