First of all, I do hope you won't rely on how implementations do this
(except aspects that are mandatory in standards-track RFCs).  Note that
even the delegation-revalidation draft in its current state plans just
some SHOULDs and no hard obligations:

Knot Resolver developer here.  I'm not aware of any references, but this
list is archived so hopefully that's enough to post the approach we've
been using so far.  We get called parent-centric due to allowing queries
to NSs based on parent-side NS RRs and address glue records - and not
explicitly trying to refresh the child side of them.  Nevertheless, *if*
those child-side records do arrive in some answers (provided that they
are in-bailiwick or DNSSEC-validable), they do get cached and used in
preference for further iteration (rfc2181 ranking).
