The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
