The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. With this a 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 site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
