The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address 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 requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to 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, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
