Will it get rejected immediately and you go to the end of the WL line?

No, you'll get an e-mail from TPTB giving you time to buy credits to accept the request.  If you don't get credits (Kiosk or Forums - Book Bazaar, I think), then you lose your place.

From the Help docs:

If you do not have credits in your account when an auto-requested book becomes available, the Auto-Request will convert to a regular Wish List offer.  If your account is on Vacation Hold in this situation, you will be "bypassed" for the book, and you will remain in your place in the Wish List.

So, if you don't have credits...it will give you a chance to buy them.  If you are not looking to buy them, then place your account on Vacation Hold.  If you don't buy the credit, you will lose your spot.  If it's on auto-request AND your account is on vacation hold, it will pass you over and you keep your spot.
