This is my view also. 

The TTL is a promise of sorts: when the zone owner publishes a piece of information with an associated TTL he is promising not to change the data within that period so that caching will work.

If the zone owner changes data more frequently than the TTL he has selected himself then the problem is clearly in the publishing end and not in the recursive server end.
