This is the default value for ambient_lights. So, it's prety useless for 
what you want to do.

Beter to use :
#default{finish{ambient 1 diffuse 0}}
This statement is not a in it's place inside the global_settings block.

Even beter. Don't play with ambient, but, instead, use the +q0 switch.
With that switch, all lights are ignored, as well as reflections and 
refraction, only full ambient pigments are used.
You also get the advantage that it render faster.
