The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must 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 Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
