The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In 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 web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
