It's not a routing problem, it's a DNS problem. Everyone can route to your site, they just can't look up the IP address from the domain name. Your DNS appears to be set up correctly, so the problem is probably with appears to be owned by Level 3, so I wouldn't worry about search engines -- they'll be using their own DNS setups, and as I say, your DNS appears to be set up correctly.

Your best bet is to get a Level 3 customer to raise a query with them.

DNS changes take time to propagate depending on the TTL that you've configured, as it's designed to be heavily cached by both recursive servers and clients.

You didn't leave long enough for the server to get the updated info, it's just fine now.
