The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This 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 IP and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
