Teammates asking questions should never be annoying. If I can spare the time, I'll try to give them a hand and get them going, if I can't, I'll give a general answer or point them at where they can look - managing my time is my own problem, so being busy isn't a reason to get frustrated. (Of course, it's polite to ask if someone has time first.)
Also, I will ask questions back. There's bound to be a technology I'm not familiar with, or a part of the system I haven't worked on, and it's important that asking questions is part of the day to day life of the team, and that no-one feels like they're losing face or being talked down to for needing help. And to be honest, it's nice to be asked simple questions that I know the answer to!
