I don't think Denethor ever sought advice from Saruman, but my musing was on why that didn't occur to Denethor as an option, rather than sending his heir on a journey of hundreds of miles, alone, to an unfamiliar location, to see a Half-elf.

My opinion is that his father Denethor had come to the same conclusion.
Denethor was a sharp guy on his own, and I agree he likely put two and two together.
