The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. 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 domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
