For most keyservers, there is no way to ask such a question (it  
actually is possible in the LDAP keyserver, but the LDAP servers -  
intentionally - aren't synchronized with the rest of the pool).

You can do it yourself though: go to Wotsap and search on your own key  
in the "Key Statistics" section.  This will give you a list of all  
keys signed by your key.  Then fetch those keys from any handy  

This only works, of course, if the key that you signed is on the  
keyservers in the first place.  If it isn't, then it won't appear in  
the list and won't be fetchable from the keyservers anyway.
