The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a 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 name must be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
