The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
