The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group 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 ought to be retrieved. This way a 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 correct location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed 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. Every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
