The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can see the content from the right location. Normally a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
