The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. 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 instance. Every single domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
