I think the naming is a bit misleading, because in your first
sentence you say that this is about setting the "master for
vcxo control". I.e. (if I get it right) you have one 27MHz
crystal, but two PCR/STC. Obviously the vcxo can be synced to
only one of them, so you have to choose (for PiP usually the
one with the bigger picture).

How about:

struct dmx_vcxo_control {
	unsigned int vcxo_num;	// in case you have more than one vcxo
 	unsigned int pcr_num;	// which PCR to sync the vcxo to

#define DMX_VCXO_CONTROL _IOWR('o', 51, struct dmx_vcxo_control)
