70-292 Microsoft Book - Wrong Answers?

    I've just been reading through the questions in the microsoft study guide for
    70-292 and wanted to confirm whether a questions answer was correct or not as
    i don't think it is!

    You discover that an administrator has adjusted the default TTL value for
    your company’s primary DNS zone to 5 minutes. Which of the following is the
    most likely effect of this change?
    a. Resource records cached on the primary DNS server expire after 5 minutes.
    b. DNS clients have to query the server more frequently to resolve names for
    which the server is authoritative.
    c. Secondary servers initiate a zone transfer every 5 minutes.
    d. DNS hosts reregister their records more frequently.

    Microsoft's answer was 'B' but i don't see how as the default TTL Value does
    not apply for authoritative zones. My answer would be 'A'. Could anyone shed
    some light on which is correct?

  2. Microsoft answer is correct according to me. The TTL value is used to tell
    how long others can cache your data.

    For example my ttl is 10 minutes, you query me and et an address. This
    address is labeled to expire after 10 minutes in your cache.

    Hope this helps
