The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. That 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 right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
