Key propagation on keyservers

Some time agoo I had to revoke some keys, so I uploaded my new keys
and the revocations to a keyserver. Usually one is told that uploading a
key to one keyserver is sufficient since they synchronize. However, when I
checked that I saw that some keyservers had indeed my new keys, but some
only had the old ones.

Does someone here has any experience with the propagation speed of a key
over different keyservers? Are there some groups that hardly communicate
with each other?
