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 name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
