The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should 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 IP address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
