The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. That way 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 site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
