I recently had a site updated in DMOZ, will it automatically be reflected in the Google directory whenever they update it?

Yes... when they update.
It's a fire and forget thing, just like DMOZ. It will pop up one day.

Yup when the dump happens new data is refreshed to reflect DMOZ

I dont really understand the brilliance of dmoz. Where my site is listed it has pr 4 with quite a few outbound links. I guess it's just the authority it brings and the fact that it has human editors gives it a bigger smile from google.

DMOZ is THE authority site when it comes to directories. The proof of that is that DMOZ is the basis for the Google directory.

The chief point is that about leventy-leven zillion "directories" on the web are copies of dmoz: a listing in dmoz is thus about leventy-leven zillion backlinks--even if most are about PR .003, they do cumulate to something quite significant.

Owlcroft... are you saying its a BIG BUNCH of stuff driven by DMOZ? ;)

Yeah I have seen myself popup on a few directories actually .... like you do with dmoz including this really annoying gambling directory for some reason ....bit annoying but hey. Perhaps Im just bitter that my backlink for some reason still isnt showing ....been longer than Ive been led to believe.

A listing in dmoz is not as strong as it once was interms of backlink as I read somewhere. When it first allowed the usage of the directory by other websites then there was a "leventy-leven zillion backlinks" towards people in the directory. However, after this listing not all sites upgraded there dmoz directory leading to new additions not getting added. However its still the most powerful directory interms of google's eyes.

You can check it out if you want to take the time and trouble to use backlink-seek methods that regularly report sites with lower PR than Google has--at least till recently--been doing. When I opened up a new site some while back (then all innocent of SEO) and finally got a dmoz listing, I also happened to look in, oh, Alexa, I think, or AltaVista, or maybe both; anyway, I took the trouble to follow out many pages of backlink listings, and you would scarcely believe the variety, and number (which is the point) of dumbass "directories" out there that are just dmoz clones.
Yes, many do not update much, if at all, after their opening dmoz grab, but some do, and besides, I'd reckon there are probably new ones coming along for their moment in the sun often enough.

As far as I know, There are about 250/260 BL's that count for a listing in DMOZ (of course this is dependant on the directories being updated).
A listing in DMOZ is definetly worth the hassle.
BTW, I understand that there are more than 250/260 directories using the DMOZ feed, but having spoken to various guys about this, they all seem to agree that the 250 mark is about right. (If only the directory was updated weekly ; )
