The LTE-Lite User Manual (version 1.3) says:

2.3.7 1 PPS Module outputs
The LTE-Lite SMT Module provides GPS raw 1 PPS CMOS pulse on pin 15 with
sawtooth present, and a clean TCXO-generated, sawtooth-removed, UTC(GPS)
phase-locked 1PPS output on pin 4.

It is the pin 4 output that connects to the 1PPS-OUT jack on the eval
board.  So it is supposed to be cleanly divided down from the TCXO.  (But I
don't think Jackson Labs has published any of the circuitry on the LTE-Lite
module itself).
