Exactly. The SOA record is not necessary normally. And one shouldn't
use that ugliness of zone transfer via dns protocol. So dnsmasq has
enough support (ptr, ttl, mx) for being authoritative. One cannot set
ttl for each record but this is rarely necessary. It even works
without ns, it's just inelegant to have no answer when asking to the
machine responsible for the zone.
If the configs are defined via dhcp dnsmasq is ideal because it
integrates dhcp leases in the dns automatically.
