Turn the lights of/Light behaviour
Some lighting nodes illuminate everything, others only illuminate those that
are siblings (or children of siblings). SpotLight and PointLight illuminate
everything within their radius. DirectionalLight illuminates siblings and
children of siblings. In you case, the spot may be insufficiently bright or
too far away to noticably contribute to the lighing on the wall. Try animating
the internsiy and/or color of the light and see if that is visible.
The book I mostly use is "The vrml 2.0 Handbook". It has a reasonably clear
description of lighting.
