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 within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
