this is puzzling me.

I have an AD environment (which is leading) with integrated dns servers.

In the AD dns I have a zone domain.tld. I have created a delegation
unix.domain.tld in it with a glue record pointing to a new ipa server

This works. I can join hosts to the IPA domain and reach their
services from the AD domain.

this is the what a host querying the AD dns servers gets when getting
info about the unix.domain.tld zone:

$ dig unix.domain.tld

; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.5 <<>> unix.domain.tld
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 34185
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

;unix.domain.tld.        IN    A

unix.domain.tld.    300    IN    SOA    kdc01.unix.domain.tld.
hostmaster.unix.domain.tld. 2012110713 3600 900 1209600 3600

And the TTL is 300. When I re-run the query, I see that it is less
than that. This is normal, I have the domain.tld in AD dns with ttl 5

So far, so good.
Do you set TTL = 300 explicitly for unix.domain.tld. (i.e. SOA record), right?

Now I joing a host to the IPA domain and query the host:

$ dig solr01.unix.domain.tld

; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.5 <<>> solr01.unix.domain.tld
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 7726
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;solr01.unix.domain.tld.    IN    A

solr01.unix.domain.tld. 84185    IN    A

The ttl has gone up to one day.
86400 seconds is default value for entries without explicit TTL definition. TTL setting is effective per-name, so setting TTL for zone's root (SOA record) will affect only SOA itself.

Current version have default TTL 86400 seconds hard-coded. It is known limitation and it is planned to address this in IPA 3.2:

Before this ticket is solved you have to explicitly set TTL attribute for each existing DNS name. Sorry!

this are the zone settings in IPA:
$ ipa dnszone-show
Zone name: unix.domain.tld
   Zone name: unix.domain.tld
   Authoritative nameserver: kdc01.unix.domain.tld.
   Administrator e-mail address: hostmaster.unix.domain.tld.
   SOA serial: 2012110713
   SOA refresh: 3600
   SOA retry: 900
   SOA expire: 1209600
   SOA minimum: 3600
For completeness: This value affects only negative record caching.
See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2308
section "2.2.1 - Special Handling of No Data",
part "4 - SOA Minimum Field".

   Active zone: TRUE
   Allow query: any;
   Allow transfer: none;

In the web-ui I have filled in the SOA time to live field: 300 for
this zone, but it is not being picked up.
The plan is to have separate SOA TTL and per-zone default-TTL setting, but now there is no attribute for default TTL.

Where can I set this? If there are changes on the IPA server, I do not
want that the old info gets cached for a day on the AD dns servers.

I'm not entirely sure where that 86400 came from. When we do a dynamic update
the TTL is hardcoded to 1200. There is a ticket to make this configurable,
