The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within 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 address ought to be retrieved. That way a web 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 handles the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
