  There is no “main" database.  Your whois client decided to use whois.apnic.net <http://whois.apnic.net/>.  Since the block is now at ARIN, you will have to query the ARIN WHOIS database.  Mostly likely your whois client needs to be run with “-h whois.arin.net <http://whois.arin.net/>” to get the answer you are looking for, but there are a lot of different whois clients out there.  And a lot of different whois servers.
