That's correct.

Though it'd be a much, much better idea to leave sshd_config as is and
create a user account to use for SSH (make sure you add it to group
wheel so you can su to root).  Then I'd install and setup sudo and
never use the root account again unless you have to at the console for
some reason (recovery, generally).
