You would probably want to see when the external oscillator frequency is close to the internal oscillator. I suppose than could be done with a mixer and glue circuitry. I don't think this is cheap though.

I have a device that has an internal TCXO. I want to feed it with an
external OCXO, but I don't want to completely replace the TCXO.

Here is the scenario. On initial power on, or after a power loss, I
want the internal TCXO to be used. Once the OCXO is up, I want to
switch to it. How could this be done easily and cheaply?
