The answer depends on two things.

1. If you've enabled the Google Voice feature called Call Screening, then all unanswered calls dialed to your Google Voice number will always be taken by Google voicemail, not your telephone answering device.

2. Google Voice voicemail will take a voicemail message after 25 seconds of ringing. If you want your personal telephone device to take voicemail messages for unanswered calls dialed to your Google Voice number, you have to set your telephone device to take a message before 25 seconds (and disable Call Screening).
