I think this depends on what you want to get from a senior developer.

Some senior developer's are teachers; helping to train up those below them and help debug issues. They don't necessarily need to know everything, but they can find the solution.

Other senior developer's are hardcore coders. They seem to know everything but don't have the soft-skills to be a teacher.
