The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to 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 requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
