The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must 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 Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
