The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
