The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal 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 personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. With this 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 right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
