I think you mean that you want the SETTINGs in the DNS record to have a 
shorter TTL than the record itself. But that couldn't possibly work. The 
browser would understand the SETTINGs and would poll DNS with an 
interval corresponding to the higher SETTINGs TTL, but DNS caches would 
only use the lower DNS record TTL and therefore wouldn't get updated.
