Domain Name Servers (DNS for short) translate domain name into I.P. addresses. They are needed because people use the names to connect to sites, but the servers are addressed by numbers. You set up records on one domain name server and those records will propagate across all the domain name servers in the internet. When you request a page from a website, the nearest server to you will do the translation to the I.P. address for you. It doesn't have to be (and usually isn't) the server you set the records up on. As for SEO, it has no effect as all domain names get translated into I.P. addresses this way.
