The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. This way a 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 website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
