low jitter, moderate stability reference for ADF4002/ADf?

My application involves the detection (not measurement) of electron spin resonance through the combination of a fixed frequency RF magnetic field and a swept DC magnetic field. Absolute frequency accuracy is not necessary since a small offset in the RF would be compensated for by a shift in the  DC field resonant point within the swept range. Long term stability is also not required since measurements are taken within a few minutes. Considering all of the frequency reference sources that would be compatible with the ADF4002 and ADF4351, is there a particular oscillator technology or part that would provide the best jitter/phase noise performance with relaxed temperature and long term stability requirements?
