The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so forth. 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 instance. Every single domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
