HoldAll

Hello to everyone

Quick question with regards to why the HoldAll attribute no longer works once 
you define the function.  For example, before the definition, it serves the 
purpose it was meant to serve:

Input
Clear[ff]
SetAttributes[ff, HoldAll]
ff[1, 2, 3 + 4]

Output
ff[1, 2, 3 + 4]

But once I actually assign the "functional guts", it doesn't do what it did 
above:
ff[x_, y_, z_] := x + y + z;
ff[1, 2, 3 + 4]

10

Why?

Thanks to all
MR
