The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web 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 address should be retrieved. This way a 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 right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
