A chess question about a rule.

If black queen has a white bishop pinned against a white king, can the black king move onto a square that is otherwise attacked by the pinned white bishop. The question arises because the white bishop cannot legally move (being pinned against its own king). So if the black king moved onto a square on the white bishop’s diagonal, is it in check or is it a legal move.
Thanks, Ves
