[3.7] Fix typo in multiprocessing.pool.AsyncResult.successful doc. (GH-17932) (GH-18016)

Since 3.7 `successful` raises a `ValueError` as explained in the next text block from the documentation:

_Changed in version 3.7: If the result is not ready, ValueError is raised instead of AssertionError._

No issue associated with this PR.
Should be backported in 3.7 and 3.8.
(cherry picked from commit dc0284ee8f7a270b6005467f26d8e5773d76e959)
