Since there was an error in your account information, you will ultimately get a paper check. What will happen is basically the IRS will try to deposit the refund into the account on record. Since the information is not exactly correct, the bank will reject it and send the refund back to the IRS. Once the IRS gets your refund back they will issue you a paper check and send it to the address that you put on your return.
