A few names that can do this job: Cadence Virtuoso, Microwave Office, ADS.
You can try Transient Analysis or Harmonic Balance (or both).

hspice and spectre can simulate the PLL system on transistor level ,though it is very slow but it is only a accurate method. Verilog-A only simulate PLL on behavior level and be used in simple research or verification in advance.

It puzzle the IC design engineer to simulate PLL in sample and fast method.
