four valid NS records expire after 12 hours. The fifth
(delphi.bsz-bw.de) expires after one day. This is bad,
because the recursor uses incomplete delegation data half
of the time. Then you see only one NS RR:

# ns -T bsz-bw.de
bsz-bw.de               566   NS      delphi.bsz-bw.de

The cache dump then shows:
bsz-bw.de. -42678 IN NS dns1.belwue.de.
bsz-bw.de. -42678 IN NS dns3.belwue.de.
bsz-bw.de. 566 IN NS delphi.bsz-bw.de.
bsz-bw.de. -42678 IN NS uranos.rz.uni-konstanz.de.
bsz-bw.de. -42678 IN NS konstanz.bsz-bw.de.

Sorry, no.
