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 selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to 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 required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
