I guess it's the same. On our head node I ran:

  /etc/init.d/torque-scheduler stop

The job submissions are managed by the pbs server. As long as no 
scheduler sends any requests the jobs will stay in the queue(s).
So either you tell your server to ignore scheduling requests or you stop 
sending scheduling requests at all.
