The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. That 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 Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
