The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In 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 address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
