You could always send a TTL of approximately zero with any of the dud
DNS replies. I'm not sure how real-world DNS caches deal with really low
TTL values, so it may just cause more hard to diagnose problems.

Some people (me, for example) won't even use the ISPs DNS servers, and
run their own DNS server that talks directly to the root servers.
