Thanks Neel for the clarification!

You cannot synchronize USRP devices by using a daisy-chain configuration.  The 10 MHz reference and the 1 PPS on both USRP devices must be connected to a common 10 MHz reference and to a common 1 PPS signal.  The OctoClock-G device can be used to generate these signals and to distribute them to 8 devices.  Then, for each USRP device, in UHD or GNU Radio, set your clocking source and timing source to "external".

I am trying to time synchronize two USRPs. I have connected reference and PPS trigger out of USRP A to reference and PPS trigger in of USRP B. In USRP A i have set time and clock source to GPSDO and in USRP B I have set time and clock source to external. But I when I try to compare uhd::time_spec for both the boards I see there is a time mismatch. Please help me understanding where I am going wrong.
