The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show 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 an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way 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 address and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
