The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in 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 name must be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
