Force TTL on a Caching Name Server

Hi everyone,

I am not sure if this can be done, but I would like to set up a caching
name server that only caches results for a maximum of 5 minutes. That
is, I would like to override the result's TTL, refresh, retry etc to
only 5 minutes. Effectively, the nameserver must do a fresh lookup
every 5 minutes.

Is this achievable in bind? If so, what configuration should I use?

Thank you.
