You can't.  You can configure a max cache time, but not a minimum.

Why do you think this is a good idea?  With your method, it would have 
to do two queries whenever a record's TTL has expired: first check the 
SOA to see if it has changed, then query the record.  The standard 
algorithm just queries for the record you want.
