Hmm - my read on that, and IANABE, is that the server you're querying is not
respecting the TTL you've specified. I just had a quick look at the cricket
and the exact words used are "it will have to remove the entry from its
cache after an hour" when talking about a server outside your domain where
you have the TTL set to 3600. So this leads me to the conclusion that the
Eircom server is behaving incorrectly. Why do I not find this surprising ?
