The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain 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 address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
