The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
