If you distribute the key yourself, you can set a preferred keyserver
flag on your key. You can have that point to, e.g., and refreshes should be done from there
(unless the other user changes "keyserver-options honor-keyserver-url").

With PKA, you can even get automatic key retrieval without a keyserver.
