Re: how to relocate servers transparently

That's right for the case of bind using another bind as forwarder!
I mean asking the first bind or asking the forwarder at the same time 
would result in the same TTL.
Don't know about other DNS server types.

Can you explain that a little further?  If my nameserver caches a record with 
TTL 86400, and someone asks for it again an hour later I hand them the record 
from my cache using TTL 82800 (not 86400).  This is certainly what bind does, 
if other caching nameservers do it differently then it's a bug IMHO.

I would be very surprised if it is different when DNS queries are being 
forward from one DNS server to another.  Or did you mean something else?
