The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out 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 inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. That way a web 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 website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
