I learned that from the help page when I added my first PPA:

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 247510BE
[sudo] password for <user>:
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring

gpg: requesting key 247510BE from hkp server

Actually I'm showing:
Key ID: 247510BE
Type: RSA
Strength: 1024
Created on 2009-02-04
Expires: Never

Looks OK to me.
