Suitability of using an LTC6957-3 in dad design.

I have, for a long time been thinking about my own design for an ESS based dac for a project that I am working on. I would like to know whether the anyone thinks that the use of an LTC6957-3 between a 100MHz OCXO and a pair of ESS dacs would impact on the close in phase noise in a way that limits the performance of the DAC. The buffer will be fed an input signal of between 9 and 10 dBm.:D

Any other views on how best to drive these DACs from a sinusoidal clock would be useful, including references.
