I agree. An authoritative answer should override glue.
But what should happen if that expires? If it had a 1 second TTL?
I wouldn’t want a revalidation of the parent every 1 second.

I don’t think "the TTL of the parent's delegating NS RRset is meaningless”.
If a child zone is unreachable, it could stay in the cache to prevent requerying the parent during the parent’s TTL while the child is unreachable.
When the child is reachable, it could be a timer for a resolver to revalidate if I understand section 2.2 correctly, and simply requery the child for authoritative NS records if they expire before that timer ends.
