Turn off ncache?

In an educational lab environment, I want to turn off negative
caching, to make changes to the zone files propagate infinitely

In named.conf (8.2.2-P5) one can set
  max-ncache-ttl  nnn;
to limit the ncache retention time.

Setting the time (nnn) to "2" (seconds) works well, and is adequate
for all practical purposes.

Setting it to "0" seems to have no effect, and does not turn off
ncache, as one would expect.
