The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
