Question about Heating & Cooling
You need to push the gas supply knob inwards and HOLD it while lighting the ignitor.
Once lit keep holding for 15 seconds and release.
The gas thermo switch needs to warm up first before it will allow a constant flow of gas. Also called the gas fail save device.

Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

You may have a dirty/rusty burner that is clogged or your gas valve
manifold pressure setting may be too low. Normal manifold pressure
is 3.5 inches water column on natural gas furnaces. ( 1 psig is equivalent to 28 inches water column). Pull and clean burner. Also
check and clean pilot assy. including flame sensor (if present).
Please let me know.

SOURCE: I have a Vermont Castings
From what you are showing and saying I would say that you have a bad gas valve... Your test B is the most telling in that it pulls the MV's down when you close the wall switch, but the gas valve does not open...this tells me that it is trying but the valve is not opening...
Now... the next problem will be to find that valve... from doing a very quick search, I believe that it is an OEM valve and probably will only be available from the manufacturer or a dealer...
So I would contact your dealer or Vermont castings and try to secure a new gas valve.
If it were a thermocouple problem the pilot would not stay lit...
One other test would be to bypass the wall switch and jumper the gas valve directly to make sure the wall switch is not the problem...

On some gas valves the pilot setting is on the same dial as pilot on and on .on others the pilot light has aseperate button on right side of control dial. If yours has this there will be a cut out on cotrol dial that must be aligned with button to allow it to be depressed to light pilot. If yours has this align control dial cutout with pilot button,depress button and light pilot,hold for about one min. and slowly release,if pilot light stays lit,turn down thermostat and rotate control dial normally to right . There should be arrows or marks on dial and gas valve to line up. If pilot light stays lit turn dial to next position and check to see that pilot is still lit. This should be on position, turn up thermostat and burner should light. If your dial has pilot light setting on it then rotate dial to each position,try to depress dial and when you have right one dial will depress allowing you to light pilot. Follow same procedure as above and you should be in business. Hope this helps.Thank you

Majestic DVR36RN: Here's what you need to do: Verify gas line is open. (You said you already have done that). Next turn the switch to pilot (you said you did that too). Make sure wall switch is on also. Now press and hold the pilot switch and hit the ignitor. Once it lights you need to continue to hold the pilot switch for roughly 1 minute. Release the knob and the flame should stay lighted. Now, turn the knob to on. You should be all set now.
