If a motion is ruled out of order in a board meeting by the president because it is in violation of the bylaws, what happens next? Is there discussion about the motion ruled out of order? Does the board vote on whether the motion is out of order or not?

There is no discussion and no vote unless the ruling is appealed.

There would be no point in discussing a motion that isn't in order.  There could be a vote on the ruling of the chair if two members (a mover and seconder) move to Appeal from the Ruling of the Chair.  Otherwise, it's on to the next item of business.
