The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this 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 address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
