The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address 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 is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
