If my (sometimes faulty) memory serves me well it is in the three day range (but configurable) which is ample time unless the problem occurs early in a holiday weekend and and the notification/escalation process isn't what it should be (Murphey's Law)...

The value you refer to is the SOA record _expire_ value for a zone, I 
believe is should be set to between 14 and 28 days.
