DNS not propagating for my domain on Azure DNS

I have a pay-as-you-go subscription with enough billing credits and my DNS is propagating properly on Google DNS servers where my subdomain cloud.vhly.com resolves on 8.8.8.8.

Below is an image of what I mean.

We have several associates in other countries who cannot resolve on certain DNS servers.

Any help on this is very much appreciated.

Hi @OscarM-2739
First of all, your dns records don’t propagate, they’re cached on other dns root servers.
Here’s a good article on the subject.
As long as you’ve properly registered your domain and assigned a pointer to your domain servers (which must be accessible on the internet) then after several hours your domain should be cached.
But remember all dns entries are maintained on your dns server, not the root servers.
Caching doesn’t include dns records, just pointers to your server(s).

Yes sorry, cached. I read that's the proper term.

Do you know why this could not be properly cached on several DNS servers but some are?

I have properly registered my domain and it's managed by Azure DNS using the right name servers. It's been more than 5 days since I setup my records and still it's not cached on DNS servers like Quad9 and Verizon.
