Reference: Sharh ‘Umdatil-Fiqh – Tape No.8, Question No.58

Question: If I entered the masjid after the adhaan of the Fajr prayer [has been called], should I pray the two rak’ahs of tahiyyatul-masjid, and then pray the two [Sunnah] rak’ahs of Fajr?

Response: [Praying] the two [Sunnah] rak’ahs of Fajr suffice the tahiyyatul-masjid; [so] pray the Sunnah of the Fajr, as that will be sufficient.
