The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
