Spot/partial metering while using TTL flash?

I suppose this could be different for different companies but with Canon specifically, when you have your metering set to spot and an eTTL flash, will the ambient exposure be completely ignored in Av mode? In evaluative, the camera meters/sets exposure for ambient while flash meters for subject. But if both the flash and spot are metering the subject, what happens to the ambient?
