There is no definitive answer to this question, as there is no "Times
Sans". It depends on what you are after.

The most used choice is a downscaled Helvetica. Although not necessarily
aesthetically pleasing, it will go almost unnoticed (like Times for
serif) because this is what people expect.

The next thing to consider is, whether the sans serif should "match"
or "stand out". In the first case, a "semi-serif" (like Ivona) might be
advisable, in the latter a contrasting shape with maybe even different
grey value like Avant Gard (or the TeX Gyre variant Adventor).
