Strangely, the OED claims that in British English, the 'proper' pronunciation is I described in my original post.



Dunno, but the only one I can find online has British English "dynastic" pronounced as I say it:

I misremembered, it was the Cambridge dictionary which provides pronunciations for both Britsh and American English, as well as dynasty & dynastic on the same page:
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/pronunciation/english/dynasty

If you listen to the American English pronunciation for both variations of the word, you'll note that they pronounce both words with a -y, rather than one with a -i and the other with a -y as the British pronunciation does.
