The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal 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 within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
