The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
