The most important domestic customers
Explanation:
Major accounts or key accounts usually refers to a company's most important clients. The "major" refers to how important the customer is to the company, not to how big the customer is. I also think National means "domestic", versus international. It doesn't matter if they have branches nationwide (all over the country) or not.
