[public-dns-discuss] Google Public DNS not resolving subdomain...

A subdomain on one of my .com is not resolving properly while I'm using Google Public DNS. Here's what I did to setup the subdomain.

I logged into my domain registrar account and then went into my Dashboard, I went down to the DNS records and click on Add New Record then under Advance DNS I selected "URL Redirect Record", under Host I entered the subdomain name, then under Value is the URL address that I am forwarding to and the TTL is set to 30, I then clicked Saved All Changes and then logout completely. I then went into the Chrome Browser and cleared all history and cookies, closed the browser and opened the DOS command prompt and flushed all of the DNS records from my cache using IPCONFIG /flushdns.

I did a periodical check and found that while I'm using and as my DNS servers in my router even after 45 minutes to 1 hour the subdomain had not yet resolved and I kept getting a 404 Page Not Found error but when I reverted the router to my ISP's DNS servers the subdomains worked fine, I even used my smartphone and iPad both of which have separate ISPs and the computers in the library in my community which are are on the Homeowners Association's corporate servers the subdomain worked fine but when I go back to / that's when the problem's ugly face pops up again.

Oh and I forgot to mention the main page of my domain works fine because it points to my Blogger page using the CNAME records ghs.google.com and (redacted).googlehosted.com so it's appears that its an issues with recognizing and resolving my subdomains on Google Public DNS. Help would be appreciated.
