The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out 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 inside a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to 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 web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
