The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. That 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 correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
