Um, you have it completely backward. Botnets are computers with IP addresses. They don't need DNS pointing at them to send spam. DNSBLs with low TTLs try and list them the moment the first spam hits the spamtraps. There is fast flux DNS for computers running landing pages, but they tend to use a lot of A records at once and don't care about the TTL since they're going for quantity, not quality. >But to answer your question, off-hand, I'd say that any TTL under 60s is = >suspicious and any TTL under 10s is almost certainly intentionally = >abusive. I hope you're not planning to do much spam filtering.
