In order to set a zones TTL you will need to perform the following;

First select the zone(s) that you want to update from the menu, then enter the TTL in the textbox, this must be a positive value and represnts a duration in seconds. By default this is set to 3600.

If you have multiple DNS servers and don't want them to have syncronized TTL updates accross the cluster make sure to select the "Do not sync changes accross the DNS Cluster" checkbox.
