How Domain Authority works?

May I ask how Domain Authority works? I`ve read it on moz but I am a bit confused. It is true that the score of your domain authority will determine on what keywords with number of volumes will be use?

    DA (Domain Authority) is an attempt by a private corporation (MOZ) to assign a grading number to a site.

    It would be calculated from the number and type of links to a site and in turn the DA of the sites linking to that site. That's just my guess BTW I haven't looked into it.

    I think it would be useful only when comparing one site's DA to another. I am not an expert but I cannot imagine any case where a DA would be relevant to the keywords a site ranks for.
