The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within 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 ought to be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
