You can test the xresources directly in the command line:

emacs -xrm 'Emacs.pane.menubar.font: Courier'
emacs -xrm 'Emacs.pane.menubar.font: 10x20'

This works in my emacs-lucid.

In any case, I think that your system has some missing fonts that were
not installed.  I use emacs-lucid myself and the default menubar font
is very small sized.  You can always see the default font with 'emacs
-Q'.  It disables all configs and xresources.
