The ringing you hear is the beginning of the song that plays through the entire scene. The song is "Telephone Line" by ELO. Listen to it again, but this time, don't listen to Billy and Danny's conversation, you'll hear the song underneath their convo.

That's the intro to the song that plays throughout the scene, "Telephone Line" by Electric Light Orchestra. The beginning of that song uses telephone rings, which is why the guy in the song is singing, "Hello, how are you?" since he's making a phone call.

I thought that too for a while, but I finally figure out (I've seen Billy Madison MANY MANY times) that the sound is part of the music in the background. It's not really a phone ringing

It's part of the music he is listening to! I think they made a poor choice of music as far as that goes because it is very confusing!
