The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way a 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 web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
