pcp_promote_node just changes the internal status regarding PostgreSQL servers.
If you actually want to promote a standby, you must either:

1) Install a failover script and handle promotion of standby by using
   pg_ctl or a failover file

2) Promote a standby by using pg_ctl or a failover file then restart pgpool-II
