The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
