The default font family is sans-serif, so you also need to add:
font.family : serif
I think that should solve the problem.

I'm trying to change the font default on my graph to New Century Schoolbook.
I'm trying to do this by editing the matplotlibrc file. Unfortunately,
although I'm able to change the font.family, I can't figure out how to make
it use something other than the default in the family... I tried changing
the list further down to only include the font I want, like this:
font.serif : New Century Schoolbook #Bitstream Vera Serif, New
Century Schoolbook, Century Schoolbook L, Utopia, ITC Bookman, Bookman,
Nimbus Roman No9 L, Times New Roman, Times, Palatino, Charter, serif
(note I commented out the other fonts, just rearranging the list to put New
Century Schoolbook first didn't seem to work either)
Could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
