deep in my database, there is this reference

R.\ C.\ Harrison,
``Theory of regenerative frequency dividers using double balanced  
{\em IEEE Trans.\ on Microwawe Theory and Technology},
MTT-S Symp.\ Digest vol.\ 1, June 1989, pp.\ 459--462.

There, you can find some issues about the filter.

Keep the group delay small, otherwise the divider may
enter in chaotic regime.

A short description on where chaos comes from is found in

G.\ Immovilli, G.\ Mantovani
``Analysis of the Miller Frequency divider by two in view of  
applications to
wideband FM signals''
{\em Alta Frequenza}
vol.\ 17 no.\ 11, November 1973, pp.\ 313--323.

Very best to all
