The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this 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 requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
