If you wish to transmit and receive using two USRP2s, without making
the effort to engineer carrier and timing recovery, then yes, they
will both need to be driven from the same external reference.

The recovery techniques used in the digital examples are appropriate
to the type of modulation they are using. For OFDM, there are other
techniques, such as sending pilot tones and training symbols.

It sounds like you do not have a clear concept of your communications
requirements. Only by analyzing what you need to accomplish and the
channel over which you are transmitting can you engineer the correct
