In a software-defined radio, frequency estimation and clock recovery are
typically done in software, to keep the hardware general-purpose enough
for many different uses. You can either synchronize the two USRP2s by
using a common 10MHz reference input to both devices (and enabling the
reference lock), or deal with the inevitable frequency mismatch in
