That's not entirely true. In some cases, you can set the TTL to -1, so that
it is never cached, and is resolved each time.  DNS administrators will hate
you for life, make fun of you in public, and perhaps vandalize your cube if
you do this though because their infrastructure is getting hit for EVERY
request, rather than once for each client every so often.

Technically it is possible though.
