TTL is the electrical signal level.  BNC is the mechanical connector.

You need to build a cable that has a BNC connector on one end
and a DB-9 on the other.

You can add the PPS signal to the existing serial cable if you want
or use a separate serial port.

If your existing cable has a molded plug you can't easily add it.
You can either chop the plug off and add a new one, or make an
adapter cable with two plugs, one of each sex, merging the PPS
in on one end.
