Take a look at the manual page for XF86Config:

               Visual "visual-name"
                   This  optional  entry  sets  the  default root
                   visual type.  This may also be specified  from
                   the command line (see Xserver(1)).  The visual
                   types  available  for  8bpp  X   servers   are
                   (default is PseudoColor):

The correct location is the Screen section in the /etc/X11/XF86Config

Be sure to change the correct Screeen section, e.g. when using an
accelerated Server use the Section with the Driver "accel" entry.
