The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
