If you wish to disable scrolling you must deselect the "Vertical Scrolling" and "Horizontal Scrolling" check box in the Mouse tab of the Keyboard & Mouse Preference pane of System Preferences. Selecting "off" in the Scroll Ball button pop-up menu of this preference pane only disables the Scroll Ball button feature.
