The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. 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 example. Each and every domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
