The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to 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 address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
