There have been a few manufacuters that have had sectional leaks with some of their models in the past such as the Burnham V7 series. A steel boiler must be welded and here a poor weld joint could become a leak down the road so no boiler is failure free. Steel offers a lighter, more compact boiler. Most of your oil fired low mass boilers are steel. While it heats up faster, a steel boiler will cool off sooner then cast iron.
Low efficency dry base boilers should be avoided. But I'm a big fan of low mass steel boilers with indirect HW tanks. Laars MAX and Burnham LE are good examples.
