You really shouldn't use a 5 second TTL. What do you think you are really
going to accomplish by doing that. It doesn't do what you might think and
it generates a heavier load on your nameservers as clients keep having to
do lookups directly on your servers every time they go to the next page.
They don't get any benefit of caching the IP address.
