The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
