The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this a web 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 right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
