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, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
