The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
