The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. With this 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 site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
