The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to 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 and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
