$TTL is for setting the default TTL for records that don't have an explicit
TTL. Previously, the SOA Minimum field was used for this (the SOA Expire
field has never had anything to do with it -- that field only affects slave
servers), but that's now the negative cache TTL, as specified in RFC 2308.
