I don't think they check every request anymore. They may not even check any
of them. I register many domains a week, sometimes several in one day. I
don't always get around to puting them in the DNS until after they are
registered. Some I get back instantly (about 1 hour), others can take days
(or even a week or more). I think it totally depends on how many requests
are in the queue when yours arrives.
