you need to provide a lot more detailed information so we can narrow this down some.......what make burner and how old is it? where EXACTLY is the leak below a certain part like a relief pipe?......the expansion tank?.......a zone valve?......a circulator motor?........or does it come from inside the boiler and you can't detect it?.....on top of the burner?........and last about how big is the water puddle?
