The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
