The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within 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 name should be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
