It generally takes three to five hours for a DNS change to propagate thru
the distributed, world-wide database that underlies DNS.

So if the change took place during prime time, many people who use the
server by name wouldn't find it;  it wouldn't exist as far as DNS was
concerned until the DNS authorities spread their message.

No plot, just a normal glitch.
