The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a web 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. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
