A well-known result of Mattei and Moussu states that a germ of a holomorphic vector field at the origin in C^2 admits a holomorphic first integral if, and only if, the orbits are closed off the origin and only finitely many of these accumulate (only) at the origin. In this paper we investigate possible versions of such a result in terms of the measure of the set of closed orbits. We prove that if the set of closed leaves is a positive, i.e., a non-zero measure subset and the set of leaves accumulating only at the origin is a zero measure subset, then either there is a holomorphic first integral or the germ is formally linearizable as a suitable non-resonant singularity. The result is sharp as we show through some examples.
