I believe they mean a hardware clock, that can be read directly by the software, and is also latched into a register when the PPS signal arrives. A variation might be to start a hardware timer when the PPS arrives, again making it directly readable.

Also, whilst NMEA is low priority, I suspect it is not uncommon to have its generation scheduled at the PPS time, making it much closer to the last PPS than the next.
