[Unbound-users] override ttl for forwarded domains on a per-zone basis?

Hi all,

I know that unbound honouring the TTL for nxdomain is a feature, but I
would like the option to selectively override that for forwarded
domains. Either on a per-zone basis, or within the forward configuration
something like
nxdomain-ttl: x
would be rather handy for the internal forwarded zones where changes are
rare, but waiting for 1-2 hours after adding new hosts is a bit tiresome.

Or maybe an option to ignore ttl for forwarded zones & set a generic ttl
for zone-specific forwards might be simpler?

  name: "internal.domain.tld"
  forward-addr: ip1
  forward-addr: ip2
  override-max-ttl: 300
  override-min-ttl: 30

Any thoughts?

Kind regards,
