How long does negative DNS caching typically last?

http://serverfault.com – If a DNS server looks up a record and it's missing, it will often "negatively cache" the fact that this record is missing, and not try to look it up again for a while. I don't see anything in the RFC about the TTL on negative caching should be, so I'm guessing it's somewhat arbitrary. In the real world, how long do these negative records stick around for? (HowTos)
