The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol 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 right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
