The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a web 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 website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
