The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your PC 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. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
