The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a 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 proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
