Interviewer asked about bonus structure

Was recently asked in an interview "When would you be able to start and are you tied to a bonus structure?." What is the purpose of the 2nd part of the question? Do people ever accept an offer, continue at their current job till they get their bonus, and THEN put their two weeks in? Do they convince their new employer to pay them the bonus that they would have received if they were still at their prior firm? Can anyone explain what the purpose of that question was?
