Yes, the negative TTL is from the SOA, but the TXT record TTL is
not something the sending MTA has to concern itself with, the TTLs
are handled transparently by the resolver.  The difference might
plausibly matter to the administrator of the receiving domain, who
might want to adjust the negative TTL, but he might do that regardless
of whether we refresh cached (!= "none") policies even when the
TXT is not present.  That is, if you want a shorter or longer
negative TTL, you would do tune it regardless of how we decide this
