The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
