The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. 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 address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
