The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
