Help with man command

'man man' tells me that the "-P" options specifies which pager to use. 
By default, man uses more -s, and overrides the PAGER environment variable.

As I want man to use 'less' as it's pager, I set the PAGER variable to 
/usr/bin/less, but even after logging out and back in again, man 
continues to use more.  What's wrong and can it be fixed?
