Does Digital Ocean have some kind of caching servers in front of the name servers?

When I run dig on my domain name servers (dig ns) I get a fluid ttl, even though my ttl is set on 86400 secs. And now I’m getting into trouble with the root domain company in Iceland, since they constantly report the DNS ttl lower than 86400. Is there any way to resolve this?

I have the same problem. Did you ever solve this? My domain is new so won’t even let me add the DO name servers because it tests them, comes up with varying short times and then refuses to accept the direction. I have set the TTL to 86400, but it doesn’t seem to be what the actual TTL is.
