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 within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
