The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
