The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. That 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 website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
