The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a web 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 web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
